An American, a fertilizer bag and some liver saved the day for two playful kittens whose antics got them stuck in a Khet Udomsak sewage pipe.
The curious cats fell into the drain near the Dhama Practice Institute on Soi Yenrudee Aug. 17. Nearby residents and monks tried everything for more than an hour, but could not remove the iron grate or reach in to grab the kitties.
A nearby couple, Michael Sutkay, 63, came up with the idea of using some fresh liver to lure the cats into an old fertilizer bag. The trap worked and, once in the bag, he was able to pull the kittens up to safety. Sutkay and his wife adopted the cats.
