Video: Redding Firefighters Rescue Kitten from 2″ Pipe

Check out this series of videos below. A man dropped off a section of pipe to Redding (CA) Fire Department Station #4 because there was a kitten stuck inside. The firefighters acquired a pipe cutter from another City department and rescued the kitten. It appears as though maybe other City workers assisted with the rescue as well!

Well done guys! I cannot stand cats, and I am allergic, but I would have done the same thing!

Then again, you could have fashioned a “potato cannon” out of it and fired the cat across the road! JUST KIDDING!

    Kitten is doing fine. We gave it a bath and made a nice warm bed for it to sleep in. Cat is a female and we named it Piper :)
