3 kittens rescued from storm drain

BLOOMFIELD - Bloomfield City workers rescued three kittens from a storm drain after a customer heard them crying.

The kittens were crying from inside the drain as water poured in at the height of today's rain storm. Animal Control Officer Terry Broad says the kittens were traveling up and down the pipes from one sewer to another.

Animal Control officials think the kittens tried to cross a sewer grate, but were so tiny that they fell right through.

A DPW worker was able to go into the sewer once the grate was shut off. Once they were rescued, the kittens were taken to Bloomfield Animal Shelter where they were cleaned, dried off and fed.

The three kittens will be available for adoption in about two weeks.
