The black kitten was thought to be injured when it was spotted beneath a busy Fort Lauderdale roadway Tuesday, and the Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue was called to the scene.

A team was able to cut through the road to reach the drain, but even after an attempt to free the feline by the Tactical Rescue Team, the scared kitty had apparently been avoiding their reach, WSVN reported.
