Winchendon, Massachusetts. A curious cat got more than she bargained for in a storm drain recently and ended up with her head wedged firmly through one of the ones, leaving her dangling.
She was in big trouble without help. Luckily for her, the local fire crew were on hand to help…
The Winchendon Fire Department posted the following message on their Facebook page:
“When we arrived the cat was barely breathing and moving as she was hanging from the grate. We removed the grate and uprighted the grate so the cat could breath. When the owner arrived we had him get some dish soap from his house and we applied it around the cats neck, we slowly worked his head back into the grate and within a couple minutes we freed the cat. A feel good animal story for the Winchendon Fire Department. Strong work by all!”
The cat was immediately reunited with her owner. The department described it as a “feel good animal story” and praised the “strong work” of its crew.
Here’s her after being rescued:
So happy that this kitty was found in time for these wonderful firefighters to rescue her!
I wonder if she used up one of her seven lives while she was hanging there waiting for them to show up?!
Hopefully, this cat learned her lesson the first time and she won’t attempt another daring escape like this one anytime soon!
