The cat named Storm and her kittens, now named Rain, Thunder, Misty, Foggy, and Hail, were taken to an animal center for foster care
A cat and her five kittens were rescued from a conservatory gutter after the cat gave birth there.
According to the RSPCA, which was called to the scene on Tuesday, local residents heard a noise and suspected the stray cat was giving birth in the conservatory in Birmingham.
Charity Inspector Adam Bailey arrived with a fire crew and was able to reach the three-year-old tabby and white cat and her kittens on the roof.
Mr Bailey said: “The mother cat had decided to give birth to her five kittens in the property’s conservatory gutter and with heavy rain set in we knew we had to get to them quickly.”
He added, “Besides fire and rescue, I was able to climb onto the roof of the conservatory and slowly but surely contain the mother with a grab and rescue pole and then pick up each kitten and bring her to safety.”
The cat named Storm and her kittens, now named Rain, Thunder, Misty, Foggy, and Hail, were taken to an animal center for foster care.
The RSPCA said Storm was microchipped but could not reach the owner.
It added: “If no owner reports for them, they will be re-housed when they are ready.”
