Few things are more heartbreaking than seeing a helpless animal trapped with no way out. You want to drop everything and help them escape, but sometimes, this seems like an impossible task.
Luckily, there are people out there who are always ready to save an animal’s life, no matter what obstacles are in their way. This was the case of one brave pet owner and her community, who pulled out all the stops before it was too late.
Imgur user CheyAdeleRose was walking her dog one night when she heard strange noises coming from a storm drain.
When she got closer to the drain, she discovered a scared, starving cat.
The cat was so frightened that it became hostile, spitting at the woman and hissing.
The drain was tiny, and the hole for the cat to climb out of was so small that she couldn’t even see it. Judging by her matted fur, the poor creature had been there for at least a few days.
She quickly called a friend to come with a crowbar, but after an hour of trying to pry open the cemented-shut drain, they gave up.
Even after spending two hours trying to coax the animal out, they still came up short.
She stayed with the cat until 4 a.m., but she eventually needed to go home, hoping the cat might find her way out. By the time she woke up four hours later, the cat still hadn’t left.
Luckily, animal control arrived at the complex and got approval to break open the drain.
It took six men from the fire department to break it open. Though she was still panicking, the cat was able to squeeze itself out of the hole.
CheyAdeleRose wanted to get the cat medical care, but unfortunately, she quickly ran off and was never seen again. Let’s just hope she found a better life out there!
