‘He will be shown lots of love;’ Firefighters rescue kitten from hole in West Virginia bridge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Firefighters rescued a tiny kitten who fell into a hole in a West Virginia bridge this week.

The Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association said a two to three-month-old kitten was running along the Patrick St. Bridge and a passerby noticed he had fallen into a hole, so she immediately contacted emergency services.

A firefighter was lowered on a harness into the hole hundreds of feet in the air to save the kitten, who would have likely fallen to his death.

The kitten was brought to KCHA by the woman who contacted emergency services.

“The kitten, who we are calling Patrick, is still completely terrified. But most importantly he is safe,” the shelter said. “He will be shown lots of love and care at KCHA to hopefully soon be placed available for adoption.”

The shelter said it is accepting donations for Patrick and other cats at the shelter.
