Some good Samaritans in Bluffton, South Carolina teamed up to rescue a tiny kitten trapped in a storm drain after running loose in traffic on Monday. The kitten is now safe and in the care of the Palmetto Animal League.

The Town of Bluffton Facebook page shared news of the rescue today and thanked the rescuers, saying: “Kudos to Town Building Inspector Sandy Oliver for seeing a 5-week old kitten cross Bluffton Parkway and saving its life. It took a village, or at least three town employees and a Cleland Site Supervisor, to finally get it out of the storm drain. “Stormy” is safe, warm and fed now.”
