Cat stuck in drain pipe for 4 days

From the Associated Press:

HARRISBURG, PA — Bud the cat is back home safe and sound after spending more than four days stuck in a drain pipe in his family’s yard in Harrisburg.

Linda Grudi said Bud disappeared a week ago and the family searched high and low for him, nearly giving up hope.

Then, on Saturday morning, as she was gardening, Grudi heard a faint ‘meow.’ Neighbors, a contractor, a plumber and the fire department resumed the search.

Finally, Dave Jones of Roto-Rooter was summoned and he and his team dropped a fiber-optic camera about 100 feet into a 6-inch drain pipe and there was Bud, staring back at them.

Some digging and sawing, and Bud was finally freed — none the worse for wear, Grudi says, although a couple of pounds lighter after more than four days without food and water.
