Cat's Head Got Stuck in a Hole in the Floor - 28 Sept 2008

Animalkind received a frantic call on a Sunday afternoon: "Help us.... our cat is stuck in a hole in the floor and we can't get her out! She is crying and can't move. Her legs are limp."

We tried to suggest a solution over the phone, but that didn't work, so we rushed over to the evaluate the unfortunate kitty's situation.

When we got there, there was no way we could pull the kitty out of the hole - she was really stuck. She wouldn't budge. Only her body was visible on the kitchen floor and her head was hidden in the floor. We went to the basement where her head stuck through. We felt around her neck. Sharp pieces of wood were threatening to cut her throat, so we had to be very careful. With a small saw, we removed the sharp wood pieces, while protecting her throat with our fingers from underneath.

Finally the job was done and gently we pushed (from the basement) and pulled ( from kitchen above) and got the poor kitty into safety without being hurt. We happily walked away with a big purr from the kitty...

.......and some small cuts on our hands.
