PEORIA, AZ (CBS5) - The frisky feline was trapped in a storm drain. Some bar employees heard meowing coming from the drain and decided to try and help. The situation became more intense when they noticed the cat had his head caught in a soda can.
Kelli Baker told CBS 5 News, "It definitely made it more urgent because we were afraid it was going to suffocate."
Baker, along with some of her employees, rigged together a milk crate with some rope and lowered it down the drain to rescue the kitty.
"It was incredible," Baker said, "we were scooting around for some time and finally it was like we got it."
Getting the cat out of the hole was the easy part. Getting the kitty out of the can became harder. Baker said one of her employees pulled out a razor blade, and after a few careful snips, out he came.
Now the cat, who is affectionately called "Pepsi," needs a home. Baker said her living situation simply doesn't allow her to keep him.
"Hopefully we can find him a good home," she said.
If you're interested in adopting Pepsi, you can email Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
