Watch as this kitten gets rescued from a perilous predicament by a fireman with a leaf blower. I'll just let y'all guess what my original title for this post was.

I am glad the kitten was rescued but I seriously question the extended hilarity over this little thing's trauma.
I didn't get the impression they were laughing at the kitten's pain, they were laughing because for one, a kitten floating in the air like that is both adorable and hilarious, and also, they were probably so relieved that the plan actually worked that the laughter was just a cathartic release.
I agree with Sas -- if the firemen were of a mindset to laugh in cruelty at the kitten, I doubt they would have gone to such trouble to rescue it in the first place. And I'm sure the firemen were overjoyed to succeed in their very unusual rescue.
In any event, this little kitty was very lucky to have those firemen to help out -- cruel laughter or not, I'm sure the kitten was relieved to be out of that terrifying pipe situation.
And finally, let's cut the firemen some slack -- they are probably volunteers, and may Saint Francis bless'em for it.
