Firefighters rescue kitten with head stuck in tire rim

Firefighters in North Carolina came to the rescue of a kitten found in an unusual situation with its head stuck in a tire rim.

The Turkey Volunteer Fire Department said in a Facebook post that firefighters responded to a home on Thompson Street in Turkey on a report of a cat in distress.

The firefighters arrived to find the cat’s head was stuck through a hole in a tire rim.

The rescuers were able to lubricate the kitten’s head enough to pull the feline free.
