Riverside County Animal Services, Firefighters Save Kitten Stuck In Pipe

RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Riverside County Animal Services, teamed with firefighters from CAL Fire’s Station 16, rescued a kitten that got itself stuck in a pipe Saturday.

The 2-month-old male kitten wedged itself into a scrap piece of drainage pipe.

Authorities said a Good Samaritan found the kitten near his business, a car repair shop in Mira Loma.

The man bought the kitty/pipe combo into Riverside County Animal Services.

After about a half hour, using various lubricants, the kitten wouldn’t budge.

Vets sedated the kitten to make sure he was relaxed. They also hooked him up to a heart monitor.

Animal Services called in the fire department for assistance. A team of firefighters used a saw and the Jaws of Life to extricate the kitten.

Vets say the kitten is doing fine and if he makes a full recovery will be available for adoption in about a week.

    Precious little guy! Whoever adopts him, and I hope someone does, should probably keep him 100% indoors. Clearly he has a knack for getting into trouble.

    There is nothing more heartwarming than a pu$$y betting some pipe.

    Shelia Girl, how in the world did I MISS this entry. I even sicrbsube to your blog through feedblitz. Oh well, I’m here now. YOU KNOW I GOT’S TA COMMENTOkay, for the shows we like in common:I haven’t seen CANE yet, but the lead male from NYPD blue fame, I’m interested in seeing it b/c of him.Ugly Betty: same here, I didn’t see it when it first aired but the reruns have got me hooked, so I’m curious. I’m so glad they got rid of the ’1st boyfriend’ of betty’s and brought in the new. We’ll seeGirlfriends: YOU KNOW the show ain’t the same since Jill Childs left but like you I try to be a loyal fan, they had Lynn going off on some wierd path , messing with a pastor but since Persia White is a musician in real life I knew her storyline would eventually evolve to that. On one of their older episodes when Toni and Joan ended their friendship (before Jill left) one of Persia’s (lynn’s) song played in the background. No need to bring Toni back b/c I don’t think girlfriends has more than 1-2 more seasons and I think that brought the game in at the right time to take over.I still MISS HALF & HALF! Not really a game show person and I never get to see them anyway with my work hours.Never really got into Ghost Whisperer BUT I decided to really check it out as I do like JLH.The other shows I like but that aren’t on your list are:L&O criminal intent, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bionic Woman, HOUSE (LOVE THIS SHOW); My Boys (TBS—SIMPLY LOVE THIS SHOW), Dirty Sexy Money, Miss Guided, Samantha Who,I don’t get a chance to watch TV until after 7:30 so some of my shows have conflicting schedules I watch what I can when I can & check them out online while I’m at work on my lunch & breaks.Always a CHARMED & SEX & the CITY fan as i watch re-runs faithfully. LOL
