An unlucky kitten turned its luck around Monday.
Newtown Township police posted on social media that a kitten that ended up down a sewer on South Lancaster Lane was rescued by crews from the Public Works Department.
Officers were called around 11:15 a.m. for a report of a stray kitten stranded in a sewer pipe. Police Sgt. Daniel Bell contacted Jamie Fazzalore-Truelove, Newtown Township’s animal control officer, for assistance.
Public works employees John Elhman, Bart Richards and Steve Pescatore arrived on the scene with Fazzalore-Truelove. After evaluating the situation, Elhman and Richards were able to get into the pipe through two separate manholes and met about 150 feet into the pipes and saved the kitten.
Fazzalore-Truelove took the very young kitten home to bottle feed it, police said.
