Politicians Are Poody Heads

and they're not the only ones…

And now for some good news…

on September 18, 2012

A little baby kitty was rescued from a four-inch sewer pipe in Portland, Oregon on Sunday.

Portland fire crews were called to a home around 7:30 p.m. Sunday by residents who said they heard the kitten crying inside the walls of their basement and the firefighters brought in a plumber to use a snake camera to locate the feline, KPTV, Portland, reported Tuesday.

Although they had to cut several holes in the pipe to finally get the cat out, eventually everybody was happy.  It was turned over to the local Humane Society who will put the kitten up for adoption in about a month.

All that effort, and all that expense, just to save a kitten.  Kinda makes your heart melt doesn’t it?  In spite of my rocky shell, I love stories like this.  But do you know what I find strange?  Statistically, at least half of the people involved in that episode will probably vote Republican this fall and cheerfully cut funding to children, the sick, the elderly, and the homeless.  But they’ll feel good about themselves because that kitten will have a home…
