Firefighters save kittens trapped in a northwest Austin storm drain


AUSTIN (KXAN) — A northwest Austin resident called 9-1-1 Wednesday after they said they heard strange noises coming from a storm drain on Jollyville Road for two days in a row.

When Austin firefighters arrived at the drain, they discovered five abandoned little kittens inside.

After getting them out of the drain fire crews used their hose to build a small corral to keep the little ones safe.

AFD says animal control picked up the tiny felines and they say they’re doing well.
