Robson woman rescues kitten from underneath church

After two days of effort, Stacey Johnson from Robson was able to rescue a kitten from underneath the community church.

After two days of effort, a Robson woman was able to rescue a kitten from underneath the community church.

Thursday, Stacey Johnson heard a kitten crying underneath the Robson Community Memorial Church and began efforts to save it. “I noticed yesterday morning, I could hear crying from my house,” said Johnson, who lives behind the church. “We spent a few hours over here, and [tried] a few different methods to try and get her out.”

The black kitten had crawled in through a hole at the base of the church, and it wasn’t immediately clear whether or not it was able to get out again, but then Friday morning they spotted the kitten on a window ledge.

“This morning we heard her again and then when we came over, she was out sitting on the ledge of the window,” explained Johnson. “So I’m thinking she must be abandoned, and cold and hungry.”

Johnson said she tried contacting the Robson Fire Department and people from the church to help get the cat out, “but there was just nothing they could do to help.”

But persistence paid off and Friday afternoon, by placing treats and water at the opening of the hole, Johnson and her fellow kitten rescuers were able to lure the kitten out far enough for Johnson to grab it.

“Now we can give her a snack and then take her to the SPCA,” said Johnson.
