Patrick Gormley got on the phone to Cats Protection’s Belfast Adoption Centre and they were able to send a member of staff out straight away to investigate.
When they arrived at the Shamrock Sports and Social Club, they soon discovered there was no way to get to the poor kitten and so enlisted the help of the nearby Westland Fire Station.
The firefighters were able to locate the kitten by the sound of its cries and got to work removing a concrete block from the bottom of the wall to gain access.

“The outcome could very easily have been so different if it hadn’t been for the compassionate actions of Bar Supervisor, Patrick,” said Belfast Adoption Centre Manager Bel Livingstone.
|The poor kitten was cleaned up and nursed back to health|
After emerging from the wall, Macavity was quickly rushed to the vets where she was syringe-fed and nursed back to full health.
That was in June 2017 and now that tiny shivering kitten has grown into a happy, playful and well-loved cat.
