A cat living in Lyons had a misadventure he won’t soon forget. He found himself trapped and crushed between two walls, and had to call for help for someone to help him.
A woman heard the calls for help from the cat
As she walked home from school with her children, Louisaa resident of Lyons, heard persistent mewing. These vocalizations were clearly cries of despair, which led the mother to seek their origin. Louisa ended up spotting the cat in a very annoying posture. This one was completely wedged between two walls: that of the house of Louisa, and that of a shopping center. As shown by the children in the photo below, the space between these walls was incredibly tight, and it was impossible for the feline to get out of it.
How did the cat end up in this incongruous situation? This is a question that remains unanswered. He could have fallen from a roof, or even squeezed into a larger space, which narrowed like a funnel.
Firefighters were dispatched to the scene
As explained Louisa the newspaper Progress“Unfortunately, nothing could be done for him, so we called the fire brigade.” To save the feline, the firefighters of Lyons had to pull out all the stops: a classic rescue vehicle and a clearing rescue van.
The exact location of the cat was determined using a camera, then the firefighters had no choice but to destroy part of the wall to disembed the animal. The intervention lasted a total of one hour, at the end of which the cat was safe and sound, but in a state of shock. He was taken to a veterinary clinic, and his owner was identified thanks to his microchip.
“This cat is still under observation with us. He is still in shock but he is eating and meowing. It seems to go”, explained a veterinarian from the clinic.
A miraculous rescue, which the tomcat may remember for a long time!
