Passersby noticed a cat stuck in a grate over a storm drain in Winchendon, Massachusetts, last Thursday. The Winchendon Fire Department responded and found the cat with its body hanging inside the grate, and its head stuck. They believe the cat was inside the storm and drain and was trying to get out. However, it’s also possible that cat’s body slipped through from above. The fire department reported:

When we arrived the cat was barely breathing and moving as she was hanging from the grate. Lieutenant Peters, Firefighter/Medic Harding, and myself removed the grate and uprighted the grate so the cat could breath.
When the owner arrived we had him get some dish soap from his house and we applied it around the cats neck, we slowly worked his head back into the grate and within a couple minutes we freed the cat.

The one-year-old female cat was taken home by its owner, soapy but safe. -via HuffPo
