GEORGETOWN, Texas (KLTV) - Firefighters responded to a call for help for a kitten in danger of drowning in a storm drain.
The kitten could be heard from street level, crying from inside the drain in the town’s Teravista Subdivision, according to a post by the fire department. Engine 1, Truck 1, and Battalion Chief 1 went to the scene to help.
