Abandoned Kitten Cries For Help While Stuck In Sewer

An abandoned kitten cried for help and they found it trapped in the sewer!


Just when we think this world is filled with careless people, a rescue attempt in the middle of the night reminds us there are still good humans out there. While this may sound like a story about humans, it’s actually about a kitten that reminds us of how God created compassion in each of us.

Late one evening, Oscar and Jacky--owners of a taco truck called, “Tacos De Birria De Res,” and Roman Livingston, heard pitiful cries coming from a drain storm. A poor, baby kitten that wasn't more than five weeks old was trapped more than six feet down. He was cold, alone, and got separated from his family.

So, they called Hope For Paws, a non profit animal rescue organization in Los Angeles that came to the kitten’s need for help. The rescue team devised a plan to get him to safety. They dropped a cage with food into the drain to coax the kitty, they officially named “Taco” into the kennel in order to pull him to safety. What name could be more endearing that Taco?

However, Taco wasn’t interested in food. He wanted his family but they were nowhere to be found. Instead, Taco ran further into the drain. Unwilling to give up, his rescuers opted to play sounds of crying kittens from Youtube videos, hoping to get Taco to come out. Family ties are sometimes stronger than hunger pangs because it worked to draw Taco towards safety.

At first he was frightened but he was so happy to be in the arms of his rescuers and on his way to a safe and warm place. You’ll be happy to know this precious little guy is up for adoption at Hope For Paws.

And who wouldn’t love a precious little kitten named Taco? Tacos are filled with savory goodness that reminds us of just how sweet Psalms 82:3-4 is. “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
