A man's good sense of hearing helped save a cat in Michigan who found herself in a tight spot.
A cat named Bubbles apparently climbed through nearly 80 feet of pipe but got her head stuck in a small opening in a drain cover. She could have ended up stuck there for days.
The drain pipe is at a cattle auction site. A man who was at that auction thought he heard a strange noise, so he took a closer look.
"The cat's head was in there like that. So we pushed the head through and got it going. And it laid there for a few minutes like it was dead," Kendall Tobias says. "About 15 minutes later we take another look at it and it was breathing."
Bubbles was taken to the vet and treated for scrapes and swollen eyelids, but she will be just fine.
