Firefighters leap into action when kitten falls down sewer in Miami

Firefighters in Miami responded to an unusual rescue call this week.

A young resident contacted the Miami Beach Fire Department about a cat lodged down a sewer. Station 1 B-shift responded, dropping a leash down the hole, looping it around the kitty and hoisting her up to safety.

She was a little soggy and frightened, but otherwise uninjured.


“Looks like the newly rescued kitten made a friend,” the fire department posted on Facebook yesterday. “Interested in adopting?”


Nathalie Gil Rosa cheekily responded: “Can I adopt both!”

But seriously, who could resist this face?
