DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Michigan Humane Society is caring for a 5-week-old kitten that was rescued after becoming trapped in a drain pipe in the Wyoming and Grand River area on Detroit's west side.
The kitten has been named "Rudy."
He was rescued Friday when a homeowner called the Humane Society to report that he heard kittens crying under his back porch. The homeowner said one of the kittens had fallen into a drain pipe.
The Humane Society was able to rescue Rudy and his three siblings. They were taken to the Detroit Center for Animal Care where they were checked out by a veterinarian.
If no one comes forward to claim them all of the cats will be put up for adoption after August 30.
Anyone who would like to adopt Rudy or his siblings should email the Humane Society with their name, age, current number and types of pets, and a brief note as to why you would like to welcome these kittens to your home.
