RSPCA Cymru was alerted after a member of the public heard a kitten crying loudly in the Pentremeurig Road area of the town, and located the sound to a kerbside drain.

The incident has been labelled “one of the more unusual” rescues one RSPCA officer has dealt with.

RSPCA animal welfare officer (AWO) Andrew Harris attended the scene, blocked off the kitten’s escape route, and brought the feline to safety. He completed the rescue last Saturday (19 August).

The male kitten’s loud sounds have earned him the affectionate nickname Banshee – and he will soon be made available for re-homing from the RSPCA Lllys Nini Animal Centre, in Penllergaer, Swansea.

RSPCA AWO Harris said: “This poor kitten had well and truly taken the plunge!

“A member of the public was alerted to his plight after his loud cries were heard, and were soon located to this Pentremeurig Road drain.

“This was certainly one of the more unusual incidents I’ve dealt with as an RSPCA officer!

“Fortunately, I was able to bring him to safety – and this kitten is now based at Llys Nini Animal Centre. He will soon be available for re-homing.”
