When firefighters were unable to help, they brought in cable company workers who spent two hours rescuing a tiny kitten who had fallen down a pipe at an apartment complex .

Gina Chairez shared the story with KENS San Antonio Channel 5, telling the station her best friend’s mom heard the faint cries of a kitten and realized a little one was trapped down six feet of pipe in the ground at a San Antonio, TX apartment complex over the weekend.

Residents discovered the kitten’s plight Saturday night and set out to find help. When the fire department was unable to make the rescue because of electrical wiring in the way they contacted Time Warner Cable.

TWC employees Matt Williams & Scott Bird responded to the call early Sunday morning and dug down into the ground in an effort to save the little kitten. The rescue took two hours, after which the TWC employees brought out the cold, wet baby.

Kitty has been named Lil Warner, and will have a new home in Campwood, TX.
