ROTO ROOTER TO THE RESCUE!

Here's a heartwarming story of exceptional humans helping a kitty in trouble…

On Friday, in Brecksville, Ohio, a kitten was rescued from an 8-inch PVC drain pipe by a team of good Samaritans from Roto Rooter. The two Roto Rooter guys who orchestrated the rescue effort, Larry Ozanick and Michael Zenker, used a drain snake equipped with a camera to keep an eye on the hapless kitty while a crew of five or six humans attempted to reach it. Six hours later… success! The kitten was taken to a vet, checked out, and found to be just fine, although a bit dirty and smelly from being in a drain pipe for so long. Larry immediately adopted the kitty and named him (appropriately enough) Roto.

So here's a big paws up to Larry, Michael, and the entire Roto Rooter team in Brecksville. Nice going, humans! And to little Roto, a word of advice… stay out of drain pipes!
