The Alfie Story
Alfie bravely survived a 1 week ordeal of being trapped in a dark, wet, drain, ‘neath a residence when she was barely 2 weeks old. She lived on dry food dropped into the drain by the family while they called for rescuers to hoist the manhole, which also involved chopping down a tree that was built on top of the manhole.
The twist in the story is that, after chopping down the tree and opening up the manhole in the front yard, Alfie was nowhere to be found. Then, 1 day later, there were mews coming from the backyard of the residence.
The family opened up the backyard drain (which was easily accessible), and there, a petite calico face popped up! She was immediately scooped up from the drain with a hand net. Though the family had lost a tree in their efforts to rescue Alfie, they have gained an additional family member. What a meowtiful blessing indeed!
