Sometimes the world is a cruel place, and sometimes people respond with such kindness, generosity, and determination that everything seems all right again if only for a moment. It alls tarted when faint meowing was heard by customers in a parking lot in California.

David Loop did everything he could to help save the poor kitten, and at one point all seemed lost. Thankfully, rescuers banded together, absolutely determined to save the kitten. With some help from technology, they began a 33 hour operation to dig their way to the kitten, eventually rescuing it. They named him Piper, and he couldn’t be happier to be out of the sewers!
