Willy, the newest kitten up for adoption at North Fork Animal Welfare League’s shelter in Southold, had an awfully long night earlier this week.

The 10-week-old kitten was discovered Monday trapped in a 20-foot-long stormwater pipe buried about three feet below the ground after falling into a hole near the back of 7-Eleven in Southold.

Lucky for Willy, volunteers were able to safely force the tiny kitten out of the pipe.

See the photos from Willy’s ordeal below.
