Cat rescued from middle of Pan-Island Expressway median after 4 days
Previous attempts to trap and reach it failed.
A cat that had been stuck in the middle of the Pan-Island Expressway median strip has been rescued after four days.
Updates of the cat’s status and eventual rescue were documented on the Facebook page, Lost and found pets in Singapore, over the course of a few days, where it appeared that the cat could turn into roadkill at any moment if it decided to make a run for it.
The cat was most likely exposed to the daytime heat and sudden downpours as it remained at the same area throughout.
Previous attempts were made to trap the cat using food set up in a cage but failed.
The first day the cat was spotted was on May 14.
It is not known how did the cat end up in the middle of a busy expressway or how long it had already been there for.
It is currently being nursed back to health and will be put up for adoption.
The man who staged the rescue of the PIE cat is Mohd Eliyas.
In one of the post, he said it was a risk he undertook to get to the median strip in between the busy expressway to set up the trap.
According to him, he had conducted two previous rescues on Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) and East Coast Parkway (ECP) in the last three months and knew what he had to do.
Eliyas is friends with Masz Masuri, the man who rescued a cat stranded in the middle of a busy multi-lane road in Johor Bahru earlier this month.
Masz is the administrator of Kitty Konnexion Community, a Singapore cat community group.
