Kitten Saved by Vacuum Cleaner

Firefighters in Dunbar, Scotland used a vacuum cleaner to extract a newborn kitten from a drain it had fallen into!
It is thought its mother had climbed behind the kitchen sink to give birth.

Rescuers used a vibrascope camera to locate the kitten, owned by Claire Coutts, before using the vacuum cleaner to pull it to safety.

They covered the end of the appliance with a sock to prevent sucking the kitten into the vacuum. Link (with video) -via Arbroath

creativity saved the cat!

i'm just glad they didn't use a giant hook to extract the kitty.. not like that's plausible at all, nor would any normal person think of a giant hook in the first place. what is WRONG with me?
