Fireworks were thrown at us while trying to save a lonely kitten who was crying for help ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

I don't understand why anyone would do something like this! ๐Ÿคฌ

When we received a text about this kitten in the L.A. River, Loreta Frankonyte and I immediately rushed over to the location. We immediately heard the little kitten, and as we were evaluating the situation, a firework scared the kitten deeper into the pipe. We spent 8 hours in the river, waiting patiently for the kitten to walk into our trap, but even when he did, he somehow knew how to avoid the mechanism that would trap him. 

Around 11 P.M, we left the location and planned on coming early the following day. Home Depot here opens at 5 A.M, and I was right there to buy a new piece of rescue equipment - a dryer vent cleaner!

This new piece of equipment is just brilliant for saving kittens from pipes, and I am so happy I thought about it! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

I don't want to share more because I want you to enjoy this video.
