This is the moment an Australian firefighter cuts a hole in a wall and pulls out her cute fluffy kitten trapped behind it.
The incident was filmed in the suburb of Bankstown in the city of Sydney located in the Australian state of New South Wales, and the footage was shared on Facebook by the state fire service.
In the footage, the firefighter says “let’s see what’s behind door number one” as he removes a small section of the wall he had apparently cut.
The adorable face of a ginger kitten suddenly pops out of the hole and the firefighter and female resident both saw “awww”.
Apparently trapped in the cavity behind the wall, the kitten is then lifted through the hole by the firefighter as a colleague films.
The unnamed resident called the fire brigade when she could hear her kitten meowing, but was unable to locate the little animal.
The Fire and Rescue NSW (New South Wales) said on Facebook: “Over the weekend, crews from Fire and Rescue NSW Station 062 Bankstown attended an un-fur-gettable rescue involving a curious ginger kitten trapped between walls of his owner’s home.
“After using a thermal imaging camera, firefighters devised a purr-fect plan to rescue the trapped kitten by cutting through the gyprock (plasterboard) to make a small hole.”
The fire service added: “Everyone is now the best of fur-ends with the happy ending to this tail.”
Facebook user ‘Emma Howard Barron’ commented: “Great work avoiding a cat-astrophe. Glad the little kitty is ok.”
Netizen ‘Kelly Kent’ said: “Love our Fire Department.”
