One night, Tyson Hood saw a message about a kitten that had fallen down a drain. The kitten had been stuck in the sewers and meowing for help for four days, with no one able to reach her. Ms Hood, who is a lieutenant at the local fire station, works on community risk reduction and loves animals, so she immediately messaged the sender asking for help.
I have a thing for animals in pain, so I sent a personal message saying I work for the local fire department and could help. Hood said: The next day I heard about it and got to work. Hood didn’t have much experience with cats and consulted his girlfriend. She warned him that the kitten was scared and would be hard to save, and she was right. The kitten was clearly frightened and disoriented and it took an hour and a half to get him out of the hole.
When I met Stephanie she was kind enough to first find the distressed kittens, show me the aisle and explain that she feeds them regularly to at least make sure they don’t are not hungry. Hood says. When we pulled the roast out Stephanie brought the tuna and put it in front of the tunnel so he had to come out of the tunnel to eat it. He quickly understood that it was a trap and didn’t want to come out of the tunnel when he saw me, but he trusted Stephanie enough. Stephanie saw him come out of the tunnel to eat tuna and waved at me. I just put a net over the tunnel before he went back into the tunnel. He was very close, but instead he got caught in the net and I picked him up.
Once out of the sewer and safe, they gave me lots of hugs and were very cuddly, Hood said. He immediately climbed onto my shoulder and gave me many hugs, which I had never seen a cat do before. It was delicious, but as you can imagine, it smelled bad. I called my friend Cheryl and before hanging up she said to me: This is how you keep a cat, you have to bring it home. That’s how you get a cat. She laughs: If I hadn’t been in the market, this wouldn’t have happened, but after I fell in love with this little monster, I fell in love with him.
Stephanie intends to adopt the kitten as soon as he is released, which Hood fully respects. She told him that if the situation changed, she would be happy to take the kittens back. A few days later, she received a phone call. Stephanie and the kitten were innocent, the deal was done, and Hood was officially the kitten’s father. The kitten was found on Walnut Street and Hood decided to name her Walnut. She is now settled in her new home and her new dad is very happy.
Walnut knew from the moment he was saved that Hood was destined to be his father. And now they’re destined to be best friends forever.
