The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Singapore chapter posted this video to Facebook in honor of World Animal Day, which occurred yesterday. It’s a stark reminder that a little minor negligence can occasionally warrant a kitty-911 call. As you can see, an SPCA safety officer brought the kitten to safety with the aid of a rope, but things could have gotten worse, as there was a lot of empty air between the cat and the ground. Luckily, the cat was reunited with its owner, who probably felt an immediate wave of relief.
If you live in a tall building, the SPCA advises you to "mesh up" your windows, especially if your cat is an escape artist. Or just put the screens down. That should work too.
