One cat used his animal instinct to survive a fire.
An adult cat crawled into a 1.5 inch opening in a wall to escape a fire on Christmas Eve. He was found alive and well on Christmas Day.
The cat squeezed into the opening for a door that slid into the wall between two rooms. The door had been removed earlier.
The fire started on Christmas Eve night, and the cat’s owners and firefighters searched all over for the cat but didn’t find him until the Christmas afternoon.
Firefighters used a pole with a loop at the end to lure the cat out of the hole. The cat was only about 15 feet from most of the fire damage.
â€œItâ€™s amazing that an animal can shrink down and do what it has to do to get into a small opening,â€ Battalion Chief Ken Cayemberg said.
