Folks, it's time for a little Memorial Day feel-good: A two-month old kitten was rescued from a storm drain in Jurupa Valley yesterday, and is now thriving and doing great.

According to CBS, the incident went down on Sunday morning near the 3700 block of Quartz Canyon Road. Officials received a call reporting an animal crying in the dark drain. When they arrived on the scene, they realized they couldn't fit down there nor could they even see the little guy.

Instead, an officer on the scene began to pull a rope up that someone had dropped down the drain. The kitten clamped on like a champ, and was pulled to safety.

She was then taken to a vet clinic where she was warmed up and given food, and is now doing great.
