The Internet freaks out after police officers rescue kitten

OK, Internet. Let's hear that collective "aw." This kitten is awfully young to have already used one of his nine lives. But he likes to live on the edge. 

Officers from the Tampa Police Department rescued this little guy from a manhole after someone called in and said they heard a kitten crying.

And you know how the Internet is with cats. It's a love-love relationship. OK, well, the Internet loves cats anyway.

Or maybe it's not really vice versa. Cats don't seem to love much of anything. Except sleeping.

Someone in charge of the Facebook page wrote those who are interested in adopting the kitten should check in with the Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Service.

Consider the spot he was rescued from, though. You might have to name him Stinky.

While you were sleeping, Tampa Police Officer's Dwight Vinkemulder and Matthew Drumsta rescued a kitten from a manhole...
