WATCH: ‘Terrified and soaked’ kitten rescued from water treatment plant in Dublin

A kitten is currently receiving care from the Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA) after it was rescued from a water tank at a water treatment centre in Newcastle, Co. Dublin.

Inspectors at the plant noticed the kitten frantically climbing the walls and running around in an attempt to escape the tank.

Rescuers eventually managed to place the kitten inside a cage before pulling him up to safety.

Although underweight and soaked, the kitten is understood to have suffered no severe injuries.

The kitten, who has since been named Uisce, was treated to a massage to warm him up before being given a bed in the cattery.

A spokesperson for the DSPCA stated, โ€œHeโ€™s not micro-chipped and is not used to being handled very much. However, our amazing animal care staff are slowly helping him relax and are giving him space until he is happy for them to pet and cuddle him.โ€
