Cat Rescued From Car And Then Fire Truck In Same Day

catThis cat has a thing for cars.

A curious little cat had to be rescued from two different vehicles in one day. It first started when firefighters in Florida responded to a call that a cat was stuck in the undercarriage of a car.

The firefighters spent hours in the pouring rain dismantling the vehicle, and when the cat was able to get loose, the cat slipped away and disappeared. The firefighters spent about an hour trying to find the cat, but the cat was nowhere to be found among the bushes and the parking lot.

Little did the firefighters know that the cat had climbed into the fire truck’s rear wheel well. They made at least two more emergency stops before returning to the station.

About five hours later, a firefighter heard a meow and found the cat stuck in a maze of slender compartments in the rear end of the engine.

The firefighters used meatloaf to try and get the cat out, but that didn’t work. After an hour, they came up with a different strategy. One firefighter poked the cat in the back, while another used a hose to force the cat into an open compartment, and a third person was able to finally pull the cat out.

Luckily, the cat was not hurt and was just dirty. The cat was cleaned up and taken to the vet. The firefighters will care for the cat at the fire station until the cat is adopted.

The cat has been named Charlie.
