Buffalo Belle’s Dramatic Window Sill Rescue
See Buffalo Belle on WKBW-TV with Mike Randall >>
Talk about a community coming together to save a tiny animal…this story has it all.
A concerned and extremely aware community member saw a kitten in the window of a nearby semi-abandoned home in Buffalo….but the kitten wasn’t able to safely move. Her neck was wrapped within the cords of an old drape near the window, which meant that one step off of the window sill would mean certain death.
The community member called the SPCA Serving Erie County, and SPCA Investigator William Heine rushed to the scene. With assistance from Buffalo Police and Officer Krug, along with Buffalo Firefighters (Engine 3), Heine was able to enter the property, safely remove the kitten from the life-threatening situation, and transport her back to the SPCA’s infirmary.
The kitten is now resting and playing comfortably here at 300 Harlem Rd. in West Seneca, where she is being held her stray period. If not claimed, the kitten will either be placed in a foster home if she’s in need of some type of special care, or placed on the adoption floor!
Thank you to the savvy Buffalonian who noticed this kitten’s potentially-fatal situation, and thanks also to the Buffalo Police and Buffalo Firefighters! Moments like these are what truly define the City of Good Neighbors!
