FINLEYVILLE, Pa., July 8 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man said Roto-Rooter workers pulled a kitten from a sewer two days after he rescued the feline's siblings.

Ron Swidorski, 59, of Finleyville, said his wife noticed a dead cat by the roadside Monday and heard cries coming from the sewer, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Thursday.

Swidorski said he was able to save two of the three kittens using a fishing rod but the third feline eluded him for two days, leading a local family to call Roto-Rooter to help.

Giovanni Gulli, 35, a manager for Roto-Rooter, said workers used a motorized camera to track the kitten's movements through the sewer before deciding which pipe they needed to access.

Swidorski said he has already decided on a name for the kitten.

"How about Lucky?" he said. "Lucky's a good name."
