A Pennsylvania family was frantic for help after discovering that their cat was hopelessly trapped in the kitchen’s garbage disposal. The harrowing situation was recounted by the Tredyffrin Township Police Department, who sent an officer out after receiving the call.

In a rather humorous Facebook post, the Department described the curious feline’s predicament:

“It was a “kitten situation” this past Saturday in Tredyffrin Township, after our Officers were called to the Residence of a Family in the Wayne section whose cat got just a lil’ TOO curious – and was stuck in their garbage disposal!”

Officer Brian Hughes was the hero of the day – between some tools, a bit of coconut oil, patience and time…the curious kitty was finally freed. The Department assured those concerned that all of the cat’s “nine lives” were still safely intact.

“We’re happy to report that our new furry friend was uninjured and remains with all 9 lives intact – who says only Firefighters rescue cats 🐈 👮🏻‍♂️🔧💪🏻???”

    Cats can get in all kinds of strange and dangerous places – their curious nature knows no bounds. Thank you to the fireman who took the time to ensure this kitten was rescued and not injured.
