Clinton, WA – A Washington state ferry crew proved to be heroes for a tiny kitten who was in the water near the Clinton ferry terminal earlier this week. The Washington State Ferries Facebook page recounted the heartwarming rescue effort, explaining how the young feline was saved.
According to the state agency, on July 26, the Kitsap crew learned that a kitten was spotted on an in-water terminal structure at Clinton. While searching, they spotted the kitten in the water and quickly made the decision to launch a rescue boat to save him/her from drowning.
The crew was able to pluck the kitten from an offshore piling and transport the little one to Clinton terminal employees, who created a comfortable kennel out of materials.
The kitten was transported to the South Whidbey Animal Clinic for a check-up.
Great job ferry crew!!
