Tiny Kitten Rescued From Sewer Pipe Along U.S.-Canadian Border, Named Alberta (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
In one of the most daring — and darling! — international incidents in recent history, a tiny kitten was rescued at the border crossing between Detroit and Windsor, Ont., on Sept. 10.

No one knows how this cat found her way into a sewer pipe near the Ambassador Bridge on the United States side, which connects the two cities over the Detroit River. A concerned citizen first called the Michigan Humane Society after hearing her forlorn cries.

When MHS Rescue Driver Chris Ouwerkerk arrived at the border crossing, he quickly realized that saving the 5-week-old kitten wouldn’t be easy.

Though the kitten wasn’t traveling with a proper “pawsport” or identification papers, MHS officials have named her Alberta (like the Canadian province!) and are making sure she gets the help she needs.

This kitten is going to a foster home for a few weeks to recover and put on some much-needed weight before she will be available for adoption.

We’re thankful officials haven’t mentioned anything about a “depurrrrtation” for this frisky little feline traveler!
