A carrot, a kitchen funnel and a saxophone mouth piece

This week so far has been sad and grim and scary and I was feeling really down. Then I ran across this gem and had to share. This guy made a fantastic sounding clarinet from a carrot, a kitchen funnel and a saxophone mouth piece.

Construction Workers Heard Cries Coming From Underground. You Won't Believe What They Rescued!

Andrew Chatwin and Isaac Wyler found a kitten buried up to it's head in cement trapped in a metal tube on a construction project they were working on. It's sickening that someone would do this, but thankfully the cat was rescued and is safe now.

UP DATE: The kitten died a few days later.

Authorities in the Mohave County Sheriff's Office in Colorado City, Ariz. announced Tuesday they will actively pursue an animal cruelty case and post new patrols in the community after a helpless kitten was thrown into a metal pipe filled with cement during the Memorial Day holiday. Andrew Chatwin rescued the kitten by cutting through the metal tube and chipping away at the hardened cement. snip

As soon as the emaciated and injured kitten was freed, he was taken to Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. Sadly the kitten named Thomas by his rescuers, died a few days later as a result of his massive injuries.

The article suggests that this and other acts of animal cruelty are acts of religious retaliation against the property owners who left the Warren Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Raw footage of the trapped kitten and the rescue is at the link, but fair warning, it is very difficult to watch.
