The feline was lucky that its owner heard the meow from a distance while looking for the cat that night. The feline was found trapped inside a monsoon drain nearby their house.

As they were having difficulties going into the covered drain to retrieve the cat, they called up Miri Civil Defence Force (APM) for help.

Upon responding to the alert at 9.16pm, a team of three APM personnel arrived to help extricate the cat. The whole process took them less than 10 minutes.
