Kitten Got Head Wedged in Dumpster Drain

Somehow, a tiny kitten got into a large industrial bin at a parking lot in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK. What’s worse, the kitten then got her head through the drain hole at the bottom and became stuck! A passerby notice the kitten and alerted the RSPCA.

RSPCA inspector Steve Morrall said: "When I arrived, I saw the head of the kitten poking out from this bin - it was so unusual and I have never seen anything like it before.

"It is very likely she was looking for food in the bin, but panicked when the bin was being emptied and got herself stuck.

"The kitten was so stuck that it became obvious I would need extra assistance from West Midlands Fire Service. They were absolutely brilliant."

The fire service used a small plastic collar coated with a lubricant to gently ease the kitten’s head back through the hole. A veterinarian was standing by in case sedation was needed. The kitten was then examined at a veterinary clinic and deemed healthy outside of an understandably low temperature. The five-week-old kitten was turned over to the RSPCA, who named her Dusty and will put her up for adoption soon. -via Arbroath
