Firefighters rescue kitten from drain in Fairview Heights

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, a wee kitten stuck down a drain was rescued thanks to efforts by the SPCA and firefighters last week. It took more than three hours to retrieve the 7-week-old kitten from the drain, which proved tricky to access due to it sloping beneath the curb. Firefighters couldn't get into the drain, so had to create a platform for the kitten, which was eventually coaxed out with some food. The male kitten is now being cared for by the SPCA where he will be desexed and put up for adoption.

Auckland Transport is proposing to install no-stopping yellow lines at the end of Balmain Road (including at the entrance to Kauri Point Domain), to address concerns from residents regarding parked vehicles blocking access to the road.
The changes will result in the removal of 14 on-street parking spaces.
