"She's a talker." *meow* And it was that noise that haunted Ziebart's auto shop employee, Matt Michaelis, for days. He tints windows at the business on Wilson Road. And during his shift this past weekend... "We kept hearing a *meow* so we looked down and couldn't see nothing so we brought a light out, pushed the light down there and then we saw a little head sticking out, a little kitten head." The kitten snuck several feet in an open drainage pipe since Saturday. Matt says they called a rescue agency for help but no answer. So last night they took the rescue into their own hands. "We just got diggin'." But it wasn't enough. Soon the Capital Area Humane Society would arrive, but that didn't help either. It wasn't until an agent flagged down this company. "This is our own pump truck that we use for grease traps, septic tanks, and things of that nature." Roto-Rooter's excavation supervisor, Kevin Adkins, would know just how far the uses of his septic tank vacuum could reach. "I just took this hose and attached it to the back of the truck." "And he went down there with the tube and grabbed it and pulled it right up out of there." Today, this little kitty is doing just fine and the home she got stuck in for days is now just a few feet away from her new house at the auto shop. "They looked it over and said I could come pick it up today."
