Roto-Rooter To The Rescue: Saves Kitten From Awful Fate

The following feel-good story caught my attention because it was a rare case of a problem actually being solved.
"It was Roto-Rooter to the rescue for an unlucky black kitten that got stuck in an outdoor drainage pipe near Cleveland.
The plumbing and drain service was called in Friday by workers at an Ohio firm. Someone spotted the kitten down an outside pipe, but other agencies either declined to help or didn`t answer their phones."
