Five kittens were rescued on a Gold Coast Beach in Australia last night. Residents and tourists spotted someone dumping the kittens along with the mother cat near the North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club.
Though the rescuers were able to retrieve all the kittens in about two hours, the mother cat was nowhere to be found.
Until this morning, a few people heard meowing coming from a storm water drain. They contacted the RSPCA who later received help from the Queenland Fire and Rescue Service. They "hosed the drain" to try to get the cat out. Eventually they were able to capture the mother cat and reunite the entire furry family.
All the cats will receive foster care until they are ready to be put up for adoption. Scroll down to see more pictures.
