Community Service Officer Joie Mette arrived on the scene and called for backup from the Marysville Fire District.
"Firefighters used their kitty rescue equipment to lure one kitten out of the pipe under the roadway," Marysville police said in a Facebook post. "The other kitten was found by officers in a nearby yard."
