Luckily for one Wyoming-based kitty, it's more like curiosity almost killed the cat.

Animal control officers Elizabeth Wagner and Heidi Teasley responded to a call from a concerned resident in Cheyenne on Sept. 16. The caller had heard what sounded like a cat screaming from under an abandoned camper. The officers investigated and discovered the source of the panicked screams—a 5-week-old kitten, small enough to cup in your hands, who had somehow gotten herself stuck 4 feet down an electrical pipe.

These types of incidents aren't wholly uncommon for animal control officers—Wagner says they often get calls about critters stuck in strange places, from window wells to air-conditioning units.

Beautiful brindle dog available for adoption in New Jersey: ‘Old school’ charmer

  Beautiful brindle dog available for adoption in New Jersey: ‘Old school’ charmer Interested in adopting a pet? Meet Carmine — a brindle mix dog who is up for adoption at Sammy's Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center in New Jersey.Carmine, who's estimated to be about two years old, is currently up for adoption at Sammy’s Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center located in Sayreville, N.J., in Middlesex County.

The officers put their experience to work and extracted the kitten from the pipe within a half hour. From there, they took the kitten—aptly named Piper—over to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter for a visit with staff members and the veterinarian. Though the little black bundle of fur was given a clean bill of health, that isn't where her story ends.

"This one pulled at my heartstrings," Wagner tells Daily Paws. "She was by herself with no mom or litter, and kittens do better with others. I had the time and availability, so I fostered her."

Wagner and Teasley fostered the kitten together, enjoying her emerging personality. Though Piper started out as a timid, shy little thing, she warmed up pretty quickly.

"She really liked people after she figured out we'd feed her," Wagner laughed. Piper also loved playing with Wagner's dog, getting loads of attention, and chasing down her fosters' feet when they walked by.

We cannot ignore the ‘domestic asylum seekers’ who need rescuing

  We cannot ignore the ‘domestic asylum seekers’ who need rescuing The environmental justice movement sprang from a protest in Warren County, North Carolina in the early 1980s. A small, predominantly Black community was designated as the dumping site for a hazardous waste landfill. The landfill would store thousands of tons of PCB-contaminated soil. But when the truckloads of tainted soil began to arrive at the site - hundreds of protesters showed up to oppose the injustice. Dollie Burwell was one of the leaders of the protest. She’s been credited as the “mother of the movement”. Ultimately, Burwell and her fellow activists lost the fight against the 22-acre dump. But 40 years later, the EPA announced the creation of a high-level office dedicated to environmental justice and civil rights.

Wagner and Teasley fostered Piper for two weeks before they brought her to the shelter so she could meet with potential adopters along with the dozens of other cats available for adoption—kittens, adults, and seniors alike.

Halloween fans in Wyoming, head on over—there's a handful of Sanderson (sisters), Cromwells, and other kitties with spooky namesakes waiting for a place to call home. Just be sure to have all your ducks—erm, litter boxes and mouse toys—in a row before you adopt your new kitty!
