This iReport is part of an assignment:
Tropical Storm Irene Rains Kittens
- nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
At Goshen Fire, we've always considered ourselves a 'full service' department. Well, we are now resetting the bar.
The 6-year-old daughter of a Goshen resident found a box floating in the parking lot of the Northampton Big Y during today's storm. When she looked at what was in the box, she was amazed to find eight shivering newborn kittens. Fast forward a few hours and after a phone call to our dispatch center, Goshen's Animal Control Officer and Highland Ambulance EMT Kyle Meservey was asked to intervene.
Here are pictures of six out of the eight kittens that have survived. We've named them Irene, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria and Vince after upcoming 2011 Tropical Storms. While Vince is cute, we're hoping we don't have a chance to meet 'him' in the form of a storm.
Anyone interesed in adopting some cute little kittens that are currently being bottle fed (it's actually quite a scene at the firehouse) can call Kyle at 413-336-0228.
