The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) Cruelty and Rescue team on Friday rescued “Rudy,” a 5-week-old kitten that had become trapped in a drain pipe in the Wyoming and Grand River area on the west side of Detroit.
The kitten has been examined by veterinarians and was found to be in good condition. He will be cared for at the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care until his state-mandated stray holding period is up on Thursday, Aug. 30, at which time he will be placed for adoption.
MHS received word from a Detroit homeowner that he had heard the cries of kittens under his back porch, and that one of them had fallen into a drain pipe located underneath.
After an hour of work, the kitten was retrieved and seems to be in good condition. Rudy and his/her three siblings were then taken to the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care.
If no owner steps forward to claim Rudy and his siblings, after being held for the state-mandated four-day stray holding period, they will be placed for adoption.
