Ella Birchenough dropped her Blackberry into a storm drain after fumbling to get it into her pocket (don't laugh, we've all been there). Not content with losing it forever, she attempted to excavate the phone herself. Then, in a scene straight out of Every Cartoon Ever, her legs were left dangling while her upper torso was stuck in the drain. Birchenough insisted that she didn't need assistance, but her panicked mother called the local fire department to help get her out safely.

The phone, however, now belongs to the rats and sewer mutants.

Here's a heartwarmer -- five years ago, Redditor Mantees found a tiny kitten. But it wasn't your average kitten:

While I was on holiday in the south of Italy (was living in the north) I found a tiny kitten desperately crying with the power of a thousands suns. I decided to take care of her during my holiday, so that she would be stronger and more capable to survive when I would leave back home. At the time she was obviously too young to survive alone under a 43 degrees Celsius (109 F) sun.

Her legs were clearly not okay, the mouth was also asymmetrical and impossible to close, probably because of a trauma, but the worst news still had to come. The following day I brought her to the vet who said that her eyes were closed not only because she was still too young but also because an infection ate both eyeballs. The vet also said that she was too weak, and that he thought that she could not survive.

In the following days my brother and I started to take care of her eyes infection, ears infection, intestine worms and fever, while keeping her warm, feeding her with warm powder milk every 4 hours and teaching her to follow the noise of our steps and clapping hands. After 15 days Skunky was still weak but alive, but I had to leave. So I changed my plane reservation to include a pet, and long story short, Skunky is now sleeping in my bed, with the body under my covers and her head on my pillow.

…what Skunky gives to me everyday is worth 10 times more what I might do for her.

Puddle of tears.
