Struggle to save a kitten

Wednesday, August 20, 2008 | 9:35 p.m. CDT
From left, Jack Rudelic, Paul Eschen and Greg Macarthur pry open a manhole cover along South Commercial Drive to help look for a stray kitten that wandered into the storm drain Wednesday.

   

The kitten — named "Striker #4" by its new owners — sits frightened in the back of a cage after being rescued out of a creek Wednesday.
From front, Alex Carranza and his children Emily, 8; Andy, 11; and Melissa, 6 work their way through tall weeds behind the Log Hill Run Apartments looking for a stray kitten that got caught in a storm drain Wednesday. The Carranzas were looking for a creek where the storm drain emptied into.
Andy Carranza, 11, left, hands the rescued kitten to Paul Eschen as Carranza's sister, Melissa, 6 looks on. Eschen and his roommates adopted the kitten on the spot and plan to name him "Striker #4."
After finally catching the frightened kitten in a creek, Alex Carranza, left lets his son Andy, 11, hold the cat. Carranza and his son followed the meows of the kitten and grabbed a hold of it when it got caught in the tall grass.
