It’s a classic cliche for firefighters to save cats from trees, but I’ve never seen or heard a real story before. Until now. The┬áRedding Fire Department were given the difficult task to save a kitten that was stuck in a pipe. It’s a long first two minutes, but then finally, the kitten is freed.

You can hear it really crying, but once totally freed, relaxes. The firefighter puts the kitten in a box, because after dealing with cats before, he wanted to keep it from running away or further injuring itself. Later the kitten was adopted by the newswoman who covered the story.
