The Los-Angeles based rescuers usually help dogs, but this time it was a mother cat and kittens in a tight spot. They performed a quick on-site reconnaissance and decided they need the right tools to get the job done.

They came back the next day ready to go to work. Using a camera taped to a remote control car and a flashlight, they were able to monitor the rescue operation, one phase of which included using a pole wrapped with a towel to gently push the kittens to the end of the drain pipe where rescuers were waiting.
