When you spend all day reading and writing about the news, it's nice to occasionally come across a feel-good story. SO SUE ME. Today, that story happens to be about an 8-week-old kitten that was rescued from a storm drain in Winchester. The little fur nugget had somehow made it's way into the drain but couldn't get out, reports KTLA, and was stuck inside and crying. Residents called Riverside County Animal Services, who sent officer Amy Farrell to the scene.

After the cover to the drain was removed by someone from Flood Control, Farrell crawled down the 12-foot drain and scooped up the kitteh. The lucky kitty is now at Southwest Communities Animal Shelter in Wildomar, where she awaits adoption.
