Santa Fe locals rescue cat trapped in cistern
A small cat trapped in a 20-foot-deep cistern for at least four days has been freed, thanks to a few local residents, an animal rescue organization and a crew from the city of Santa Fe equipped with a big piece of machinery.
Neighborhood residents called the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society as well as Felines and Friends New Mexico, a local nonprofit whose members rescue cats.
Neighborhood residents and members of Felines and Friends crawled through the pipe and lowered food to the cat for several days.
Lucky cat is now safe at SFAS
