After rescuing a kitten from a pipe, a man had to give CPR to save her life… Watch the rescue video below…

She’s back to being a kitty in her foster home, eating, playing, and snuggling.

It’s difficult enough to get a trapped cat out of a small, dark conduit, but doing life-saving CPR on video seems nearly impossible.

Matilda the kitten fell 8 feet down a 4-inch pipe outside a Cleveland home Tuesday, but a crew of rescuers managed to save her.

According to a Facebook post from Kamm’s Cat Guardians, Matilda narrowly avoided drowning in the pipe, but three other kittens regrettably died.

Craig and Mike from local news station WKYC, as well as Kym, Gary, Robert, and Jim, spent a lot of time surrounding the pipe’s mouth, trying to catch the kid. Matilda may be heard meowing and yowling seeking aid in the WKYC story.

During one of the failed rescue attempts, one rescuer begs, “Please stay with me.”

Jim, one of the rescuers, works at a neighboring Home Depot and swiftly devised a gripping mechanism in the hopes of saving the cat.

It eventually worked, and Matilda was retrieved from the pipe. But she’d stopped breathing and had gone completely silent.

However, one of the men grabbed Matilda and turned her over, giving her mouth-to-mouth CPR. After that, other members of the gang hurried her to a veterinarian, where she awoke and began weeping.

She’s back to being a kitty in her foster home, eating, playing, and snuggling. Take a look at this stunning beauty:

“Although our hearts are saddened for those that could not be saved,” Kamm’s Cat Guardians stated on Facebook, “we are glad for little Matilda’s survival.”
