An RSPCA animal collection officer in Britain rescued a cat trapped in a clothes dryer vent using butter and a popsicle stick.
Officer Glenn Baird recently responded to a call in Worcestershire, England after the family cat crawled into a dryer vent and couldn’t get out after getting trapped in the piping behind it.
In an interview with UPI, Baird described what happened.
“The curious cat had crawled inside the vent and pipework for the tumble dryer and got jammed in tight! I couldn’t get anything around her in order to pull her free and it was such a small space — only about 6 inches wide — that I couldn’t get my hand in either.”
Baird said the kitty wasn’t injured and she slid right out once she was greased up with the butter.
