A crew of dedicated animal lovers came together to save a helpless kitten that had been trapped in a storm drain.
A crew of dedicated animal lovers came together to save a helpless kitten that had been trapped in a storm drain, working for more than 33 hours to free the trapped cat.
Concerned passersby heard the little feline’s cries coming from deep within a drain in a California parking lot, but were unable to see the critter, video of the ordeal showed.
When their efforts to coax out the scared kitten failed, they called in reinforcements.
David Loop from the nonprofit animal rescue group Sierra Pacific Furbabies arrived on the scene determined to free the cat from the eight-inch pipe.
The rescue effort grew and the next day, the group was finally able to spot the kitten using a camera that can snake into tight spots.
Thirty-three hours after it had begun, “Operation Kitty Rescue” was a success.
The vivacious kitten, named Piper in homage to his origins, recovered from the ordeal in no time.
“Piper is now safe, warm and happy!” the video notes as the energetic and playful kitten bounced around his new digs.
“I wonder if he knows how lucky he is. How many people banded together and fought for him,” Loop says to the camera while holding a sleeping Piper in his arms. “I think he does.”
