No life is too small for these Florida firefighters, who called the rescue of a kitten stuck in a storm drain this week the “purrfect save.”
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.
Fire rescue crews eventually started flushing water down the drain, hoping the current would bring the kitten out.
Finally, officials were able to catch the feline in a net after more than an hour of rescue attempts.
The rescued kitten was turned over to a local animal facility control to be treated for injuries.
