A tiny kitten looking for shelter from the recent storm found itself in a sticky situation — as in stuck in a storm drain. The kitten found some debris to perch on but was too small to escape the flowing water. Lucky for him, Cobb County firefighters are big enough. After a couple of passersby heard the kitten crying, they called 911. Cobb Fire Engine 23 “jumped into action,” the fire department’s Facebook post states. “Crew members fought through the raging water (Hey, it was at least an inch or two deep, and it WAS flowing) as they made their way to the tiny island where the kitten was taking refuge,” the Facebook post states. The crew fished the kitty out and took him back to Station 23, where he was cleaned and dried. Meet Storm, who will now live with Capt. Sue Addyman and her two cats.
