A Deerfield-Bannockburn firefighter adopted a cat after rescuing the feline from a sewer line of a home that was under construction.

The Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Department said a pipe fitter was working on a house under construction.

The worker discovered a small kitten trapped in a new sewer line of the house.

The worker called 911 and the Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Department responded to the scene.

The fire department rescued the cat from the line without causing damage to the home and without causing harm to the kitten.

The pipe fitter took the kitten to the veterinarian for a check-up and a bath.

Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Department Firefighter Joe Miller was among the firefighters who responded to the call.

Miller, who was the one that rescued the cat, became attached to the feline.

Miller ended up adopting it, the fire department said in a Facebook post sharing a photo of the two following the rescue.
