A 2 week old orphan tabby was spotted in a storm drain by a kind lady who ended up moving the 150 lb iron grate by herself in order to free the kitten and get the little one out to safety. “The neighbors thought I was crazy but, alas, here I am bottle feeding the little guy. I am in love,” said Kamaba via reddit.

No one knows exactly where the kitten came from. “I asked one of the neighbors if he knew what was up with this cat and apparently it’d been down there for a couple of days. He said they moved the grate and jumped down there but it kept running away. I ended up moving the grate by myself while he watched and was able to reach down and grab kitty instead of jumping in and scaring it.”

“I think the adrenaline of ‘Oh hell no, you’re not dying today, kitty’ kicked in and I made it work,” she added.

They have a forever home lined up for the kitty and the little tabby will continue to be bottle fed round the clock, loved and spoiled.

This little ginger kitten has used several of his nine lives after being trapped in a Fontana storm drain for days, but he didn’t give up, crying through the pipes until one resident named Valerie Rodino who heard the cries and dialed 911 for help.

Eight firefighters including the Urban Search and Rescue team unit were immediately dispatched to save the kitten after they received the phone call around 9:22AM. Initially they tried to use tuna to lure the kitten out of the drain, but that was to no avail. Then they sent in equipment to check the oxygen levels to ensure there weren’t any toxic gasses inside. A firefighter crawled in in an attempt to reach the kitten. According to San Bernardino County fire Capt. John Lansing via Fontana, “He was on his belly pushing with his feet and his hands to inch his way toward the cat, so he was pretty physically exhausted when he was done.”

Finally around 11:30AM, they successfully pulled the little kitten out of a 20-inch pipe. “He was a little wet and probably a whole lot hungry,” said Lansing.

The firefighters worked in a team to get the kitten out to safety. He was later taken to the vet by the residents and all seemed to be well with the little ginger boy. He is about 10 weeks old and has already found a new home in the neighborhood.

Did you know that having a keen sense of hearing can save lives? A precious little kitten almost froze in a frigid Long Island storm drain was recursed and whisked away from death this week.

A woman was in a store parking lot on Long Beach Road, when she heard a faint crying sound from beneath a drainage grate. She immediately called someone from the Humane Society who then contacted the Fire Department. Firefighters arrived at the scene and started their rescue mission at around 1pm.

A ladder company was called to give the firefighters a hand in the rescue. Everyone there was working together, trying their hardest to get the kitten out of the drain.
