Kitten rescued by firefighters gets new home
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A kitten rescued by firefighters is now in the care of its new owner.
Rescue crews said a woman heard its cries for help coming from somewhere inside her car and drove to the nearest fire station on Northwest 36th Street and Seventh Avenue.
Firefighters at the station were able to free it from a car's engine. "It took about 10 minutes to find him and reach him and get him out, and once we did, they were thankful, and they drove away, and we have a kitten now," said Kris Gurucharri of Miami Fire Rescue.
After 7News aired the story on Tuesday, the cute kitten's need for a new home won the hearts of the Townsend family. "I was watching WSVN and I saw her on there and just had to call and find out if I could adopt her," said Dana Townsend.
The cat is now safe, in its new home with its new family. "Kittens are so much fun, we have a couple of other cats, and she will fit right in with them."
