  • New York, New York. The Concrete Jungle. The Big Apple. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. Crying on the subway is a rite of passage. If you live in the same apartment for years, you’ll never know your neighbor’s name.
  • But it’s not all bad. In case you needed a reminder, look no further than this group who came together to rescue a trapped kitten in Brooklyn.
  • NYC Scanner, a Twitter page that posts news and viral videos from around New York City, has a video of the whole ordeal.
  • The kitten had been trapped in the sewer for almost two days when the group came together to rescue the animal, according to NYC Scanner.
  • Here’s how they did it:
  • The group used ropes attached to weights to remove a street sewer grate.
  • Then one man, apparently named José, climbed down into the sewer to get the little cat.
  • Slowly, he pulled the animal out of the murky sewer. When he retrieved the kitten unharmed, everyone cheered.
  • José held the cat up for the crowd and people snapped pictures. The tiny cat, having recently gone through quite the ordeal, appeared to be camera shy.
  • José went on to name the cat Sonia, according to Yeshiva World News. Someone brought her milk shortly thereafter.
  • We’re very happy for Sonia (allegedly her name) for making it out, and we hope for many cat naps in her future.
