"It was a smooth surface inside the pipe and perfectly vertical. She just wasn't able to get herself out," Hanson told the Boston Herald. After the cold, wet cat was freed, Hanson said, "She just grabbed on [to me] and started kneading and purring." He nicknamed the 5- or 6-week old kitten "Storm," and placed her in foster care until she's ready to be adopted, when she hits about two pounds. "I think she was just a little scared," Hanson said. "But they bounce back tremendously from traumatic experiences like this."
