A little kitten hailing from the Bronx found itself in the city's sewer system recently. According to the Daily News, 21-year-old Edita Pjetrovic couldn't find her kitten named Motz, and says he likely slipped out the door during a barbecue she was having on Sunday. During her search, a friend at a local pizza shop told her a cat was heard meowing near Morris Park Avenue and White Plains Road—the noise was coming from under a sewer grate. The Department of Environmental Protection to the rescue! Workers helped locate and rescue the cat on Wednesday using video cameras, and Pjetrovic told the paper, "They really helped. They were really kind." Last summer a New Jersey kitten was rescued from the sewers—maybe they're trying to become the sewer gators.
