Firefighters in Avondale, Arizona, came to the rescue of a cat that had been stuck in a storm drain for a week.

A woman called for help after spotting the cat in the storm drain. Firefighters had to cut through the drain's steel grate and then climb in to rescue the animal.

No one knows how it got down there. The Arizona Humane Society is giving the cat a full check-up. Once that's over, the woman who found the cat says she plans to adopt it.
