Plumbers rescue kitty from drainage pipe

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.

Enter Roto-Rooter.

A crew used a drain snake equipped with a remote camera to keep the scared kitty in its sights. It took six hours to rescue the cat.

The kitten was examined by a vet and then taken home by Larry Ozanick (oh-ZAN'-ick), one of the rescuers.

He says he plans to name the kitten "Roto."
