Fire Department Saves Stray Kitten Stuck in Wall of Home
The kitten was unharmed.
Firefighters have saved a tiny kitten that somehow became stuck inside the wall of a Florida home this week.
Authorities aren’t sure how the stray kitty wound up inside, but thanks to the actions of the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue, the animal got out safely.
The department used heat-seeking technology to detect where the animal was located in the wall.
“The guys did the whole creeping around the house thing,” deputy fire chief Timothy Heiser told ABC News. “They got a thermal imaging camera ... and knocking and going along the wall, they managed to find where the cat was."
The team tore a hole in the wall and lifted the kitten out to safety.
The cat, which was not harmed, was then transferred to a no-kill animal shelter.
The fire rescue team said the kitten is happy and healthy.
