Mission accomplished! Kitten rescued by members of Civil Protection Department

Last night members of the Civil Protection Department climbed into the ditch below Hastings Garden in Valletta to save a cat.

The saga began on Saturday evening, when a couple was walking in the garden and heard the cat meowing in the ditch.

Viki Ketipearachchi, a foreign doctor working in Malta, told social media that he panicked, because he did not know how to save this little gray cat that was caught in the ditch.

After asking for help on Facebook, he said that he found many individuals and entities who gave the necessary assistance so that the cat could be saved.

In addition to a number of individuals and entities, including the Commissioner for Animal Rights, Dr Ketipearachchi individually thanked the four members of the Civil Protection Department who yesterday managed to rescue the cat.
