Warden rescues four kittens found in road
Doctor Dolittle saves strays from being run over
PARKING warden Wayne Cherry has been dubbed ‘Doctor Dolittle’ by his workmates after saving four stray kittens from within a whisker of being run-over.
Mr Cherry, a parking enforcement officer for APCOA Parking, came to the rescue of the five-week old kittens while out and about on his scooter in New Road, Harlington.
The kittens wandered out into the middle of the road just as Mr Cherry was driving past them, narrowly escaping being hit.
“I have stumbled across many things as a civil enforcement officer, but it was a no-brainer to help save these four stray kittens,” Mr Cherry said. Once collected, the kittens were rehoused at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor, where some have already been reserved by families willing to adopt.
The kittens are not the first pet rescue Mr Cherry has made during his working day.
A few years ago he came to the aid of six ducklings who had become lost and ended up in Cornwall Road, Uxbridge.
He managed to guide them all safely back to water.
