A fire and rescue crew from Forest Grove Fire saved a tiny kitten that was buried in a large pile of yard debris, but the story didn't just end there.
Crews received a call on Wednesday from a resident who believed she heard meows coming from the 20-by-20 foot pile.
They worked for about 45 minutes of searching and cutting through vines, hedge trimmings and a Christmas tree before finding the kitten that had likely been abandoned and managed to pull the kitten out to safety.
Captain Tony Carter took the frightened kitten to a local vet for evaluation. After Carter told his wife about the rescue and showed her a photo of the little furry one, they knew right then that they were going to adopt the kitty.
“I wasn’t really looking for another cat,” he said. “But it was a hard thing to pass up.”
