Watch This Terrifying Footage of a Kitten Being Rescued from a 12th Floor Window Ledge

What better way to celebrate #WorldAnimalDay than with an amazing animal rescue from the other side of the world.

SPCA Singapore shared a video to their Facebook page of a kitten in desperate need of help. The tiny tabby cat managed to sneak out the window of his owner’s 12th story apartment and get stuck on the ledge below.

Make a difference, this World Animal Day

TODAY IS WORLD ANIMAL DAY - TAKE ACTION FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS We received a call from a concerned member of the public yesterday, notifying us of a kitten that was on a ledge of a unit opposite his block at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3.When our rescue officer, Yao Huang, arrived at the block, there were already two officers from Ang Mo Kio North neighbourhood police centre there. Yao Huang proceeded to the unit on the 12th storey, while the police officers remained on the ground floor, with an opened blanket, to assist with the rescue mission. Our rescue officer swiftly brought the kitten to safety. The kitten was then reunited with its owner. The owner was advised by our rescue officer, to mesh up the windows and gate, to prevent the kitten from slipping out of the unit and/or falling out of the windows. Cats and kittens are curious animals and they risk falling out of an open window by simple acts such as chasing a bird that was flying past.Listed in this link from Cat Welfare Society, are some options for securing your windows and gates.World Animal Day reminds us that we can make a difference with small acts of kindness such as reporting cases of animals in distress or creating a safe home for our pets.We thank the caller who alerted us to this case and the two police officers from Ang Mo Kio North neighbourhood police centre, for their assistance in our rescue mission. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Background music : Heartwarming by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (

Thankfully, the blanket wasn’t put to use. An SPCA rescuer equipped with an animal catcher’s pole, which featured a GoPro camera, was able to lower the loop out the window, snag the cat and carefully bring the pet inside.

Thanks to the pole’s special accessory, we can watch the entire rescue. The above clip has the tension of a heist movie, the happy ending of a rom com and stars one very concerned kitten. Basically, it’s the blockbuster you’ve been waiting for — unless you’re afraid of heights.

After this nail-biter of a rescue, the rattled but unharmed kitten was reunited with his owner, who was advised to add mesh to their windows to prevent further vertigo-inducing incidents.
