A New York cat was rescued from between the engine and oil pan of a car on Saturday when it became trapped in the wheel well of a car. Defreestville Fire Department has shared the rescue on social media along with an album of photos.
Defreestville Fire Department is located in Troy, New York. The call came in from just outside the Bloomingrove Veterinary Hospital in Rensselaer where a cat was stuck and needed help getting out of a jam.
According to a post on the fire department’s Facebook page
“DFD’s R9 responded to a call for a cat stuck in a car’s wheel well. We were able to safely stabilize the vehicle and remove the cat. The cat had a few bumps and scrapes but was otherwise unharmed and brought into the hospital for further evaluation.”
This was an exciting rescue for the department because it’s the first call for their new truck Rescue 9 whose main function is to respond to calls that require stabilization and patient extraction. The fire crew had to jack to the car on one side to free the kitty.
Thank you to everyone involved who took the time to rescue this poor kitty. Does anyone know the outcome as to whether the kitty has a home or one will be found? Feel free to post any updates in the comment section.
