Meriden firefighters rescue two kittens trapped in storm drain


MERIDEN — Firefighters rescued two kittens that were trapped in a storm drain on Willow Street Monday afternoon.

The kittens had fallen into the storm drain and were hiding in a 50-foot long pipe connecting two drains. Firefighters filled a capped hose with water, so as not to get the kittens wet, and pushed it up the pipe, driving the kittens to a drain where firefighters could grab them.

Nancy Rosa, a resident of the nearby apartment complex, said the kittens were about six or eight weeks old. They were part of a litter from a stray cat living in the area.

Rosa was ready with blankets to receive the kittens, a calico and a gray, and took them inside when firefighters pulled them from the pipe.

The kittens squirmed, swatted and bit the gloved hands of the firefighters but calmed down after a few moments.

“You guys did such a good job,” she told firefighters.
