Cleaning out catch basins is a pretty routine job for road crews across New Orleans. The city hosts around 72,000 catch basins and performs routine maintenance on them throughout the year to help prevent street flooding.
One of the recent catch basin cleanings, wasn’t so routine, however. According to a Facebook post by Mayor LaToya Cantrell, Roadwork NOLA workers rescued an adorable kitten from inside a catch basin on Pittari Place.

The kitten has been sent to the Louisiana SPCA, which cares for around 70,000 animals each year. Anyone interested in adopting “Basin” or any of their other shelter animals can contact them through their website or by calling 504-368-5191.
