This is a happy ending story about a cat who was a bit too curious and had to be helped out of a jam (literally) by Pennsylvania police after getting his head stuck in a kitchen garbage disposal.
Tredyffrin Township Police posted the rescue February 21 on their Facebook community page
It was a “kitten situation” this past Saturday in Tredyffrin Township after our Officers were called to the Residence of a Family in the Wayne section whose cat got just a lil TOO curious – and was stuck in their garbage disposal!
The cat may have had his tongue when he first arrived, but TTPD SGT. Brian Hughes wasted no time springing into action. After grabbing a few tools, and a bit of coconut oil, SGT. Hughes worked for an hour to safely disassemble the disposal and successfully free the trapped feline!
We’re happy to report that our new furry friend was uninjured and remains with all 9 lives intact – who says only Firefighters rescue cats.”
In an article in The Dodo the cat, Sam, a 2-year-old tabby, likes to sit on the kitchen counter and watch the water flow in the sink. The family took apart the disposal but was unsuccessful in freeing their cat. Additional photos can be found on their webpage.
