Plymouth Public Works Rescues Cat Stuck in Sewer
A local family is in good spirits after the Plymouth public works department rescued their cat from a sewer line.
“I think we got lucky,” said Kevin Mastey of the Plymouth Public Works Department. “Once Dean saw the eyes in there and it kind of ran into a dead end, we were able to take a jetter truck and shoot a hose up the line and kind of chase it into the cage. So that part was easy. It was finding it and getting it set up was a little difficult, but these guys did a great job.
Trevor Latzke, Dean Graupmann, Kevin Mastey and Tom Jones are the Plymouth Public Works employees responsible for Tuesday morning’s feline rescue effort.
Luckily for the owners — and the cat – the public works team has experience in this matter, because they rescue ducks from Plymouth sewers several times a week.
All told, Tuesday’s rescue effort took about 30 minutes.
Now, Jaqueline the cat is back safely with her grateful owners
“They got her, so I mean that’s all that matters,” said Brittany Hill, Jaqueline’s owner. “And if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have her back. My little furry, family member.”
Jaqueline is currently on pain medication and antibiotics because she developed a cold down in the sewer. Her owners say other than that, she’s doing just fine.
