Underground Cat Does Not Want To Be Rescued

EAST WILLIAMSBURG – The NYPD attempted to rescue a cat reportedly stuck inside a manhole. Un-furr-tunately, the cat could not be rescued.

On Saturday, August 3 at around 5 a.m., cops got a call for a cat stuck in a manhole on Metropolitan Avenue. The cat’s meows can be heard repeatedly in the video above. Cops went down the manhole and offered the cat some Friskies cat food, but the cat would not take the bait and ran farther down into the tunnel.

It seems it did not want to be rescued, after all.

  1. Come on, Zainab. The cat doesn’t want to be rescued? Really? Do you honestly believe it wants to die a lonely and painful death by starvation underground? How about we use some common sense. The cat is afraid! The would-be rescuers should have set traps. Please refer to Sean Casey Animal Rescue. Sean would never give up that easily.

  2. Usually Bklyner does very good reporting. Unfortunately, this report comes across like the subject is a joke. This poor creature will die — not because it doesn’t want to be rescued, but because it is terrified. This is something very sad.

  3. Hey Susan: In the time it took you to write this message you could have contacted Zainab for more information to either share contact information for Sean Casey or follow up yourself Come on Susan!

  4. Thanks! I hope that’s not the end of this story. Check to see if she has kittens down there too.

  5. Agreed. Rescuers??? Not. Maybe they should seek a new job that doesn’t require common sense…

  6. Disgusting. Call Hope for Paws in California. They stop at nothing to rescue animals. This is SHAMEFUL not the fun Story of the Day. Get another job.
