Kit­ten found it­self in a tight squeeze

Ottawa Citizen - - CITY -

Ot­tawa Stray Cat Res­cue knew who to call when a six-week-old tabby es­caped a fos­ter home, Thurs­day in North Gower, through a win­dow and hid in a sump pump dis­charge line. The pres­i­dent of their board, Dave Smythe, who owns DS Plumb­ing with his wife, Wendy, headed to the scene. The fos­ter fam­ily turned off the pump right away. Dave Smythe put a plumb­ing cam­era down the sump line and prod­ded the kit­ten for­ward, then dug a lit­tle bit at the other end un­til some­one could reach the scruff of a furry neck. “We have two of­fice cats, we’ve de­cided we need an­other one,” Wendy Smythe said. “We might call her Piper.”
