Kitten stuck in filthy drain pipe rescued by heroic firefighters
This poor kitten found herself floating in a sea of filth in a deep drain pipe. She was meowing for help, hoping for a miracle.
“We came out and used our resources, and we were luckily able to get her out,” Javier Corrales, of Miami Fire Rescue said via WPLG Local 10 News.
“It was kind of tough because of how the manholes were built, but we were able to get (her) out and save the little cat’s life,” Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Gerry Rodriguez said to WSVN.
“She looks like she hasn’t eaten in a while, so I have kitten formula that I keep at the station and I actually gave her formula with a syringe by the mouth,” firefighter/paramedic Kris Gurucharri said.
“She ate it and perked up a bit. I did give her a bath, (because) she was in the storm drain and she was disgusting.”
They took her back to the Miami Fire Rescue and kept her in foster care until she was healthy and ready for adoption.
They named her Storm.
Storm didn't last long in foster care. She now has a forever home!
“I’m so blessed and happy to be able to be the new adopted parent of Storm; I’ll be picking her up this weekend! …huge thanks to City of Miami Fire Rescue Dept for finding and rescuing Storm! This little ball of fur has found her forever home," her new mom wrote on Facebook.
Happy ending for Storm!
