City of Las Vegas Animal Control rescued a kitten from a storm drain Thursday morning.

Around 8 a.m., streets and sanitation crew discovered the feral cat at the 500 block of Portsmouth Way, near Decatur Boulevard and Alta Drive. 

When animal control arrived, workers noticed the drain was 12 feet deep. They lowered a cage with food in it down the drain and the kitten went into the cage.

The kitten is now at the Animal Foundation.
