A grey and white tabby in China is relieved to be freed from a metal basketball hoop stand in which he found himself trapped this week.
He was spooked and made the mistake of darting into the tube, only too late realizing he couldn’t dart back out. His owner called the fire department, who had a heck of a time freeing the cat. After several unsuccessful attempts to extricate the yowling creature, they used a metal saw to cut open the tube. The cat quickly wriggled out and ran away after a quickly mumbled, “Thanks.”
He was more than a little embarrassed to discover that a video of the incident instantly went viral, with cats across the globe laughing at his purrdicament. He has been hiding under the bed ever since.
