Useful kitten treasure trapped behind the wall rescued by hearth fighters

Kittens love to cause trouble. This is their business. Well that and be adorable!

Seriously though, kitties know how to find harm, and a ginger kitten in Australia had such problems that the fire department had to get involved!

At a house in Bankstown, Sydney, Australia, an ordinary day turned into a disaster when homeowners heard the high meow of a kitten in the house.

But the family did not have a kitten, so the sudden appearance of the voice was certainly a surprise. After a search of the house, they found the kitten was stuck behind a wall and was crying to be released.

Desperate to help the tabby baby, the homeowners called Fire and Rescue NSW, what firefighters described as "a furless rescue."

Behind door number one … a kitten!

When firefighters got home, they used thermal imaging technology to pinpoint the kitten's whereabouts behind the wall. When they found the kitten, "the firefighters devised a plan to rescue the captured kitten by cutting through the gyprock to make a small hole."

With the kitten right on the other side of the wall, the firefighter worked very carefully to cut a small rectangle into the drywall. When he pulled the cut free, the firefighter joked: "What's behind door number one?"

The cutest little tabby kitten face, its tiny nose dusted with drywall, emerged from the opening. The firefighter greeted him with a friendly hello and the rest of the room melted into a chorus of "aww" as they caught their first glimpse of the baby.

But kittens can get scared easily, and when big hands reached out for him, the shy boy ducked back into the wall. "The crews weren't kittens and with a little persuasion the rest of them are sizzling."

They soon had the cute kitten out of the wall and safe in their arms. When it was torn from the wall, the little orange kitten meowed its thanks. The rescue took only twenty minutes and the kitten got through its ordeal unscathed.

In love with her little intruder

Little did the kitten know when it somehow wandered into the wall, it writhed into its eternal home. In a moment of love at first sight, the homeowners were hit by the kitten and decided to adopt him.

Fire and Rescue NSW Bankstown announced, "Everyone is now the best fur with a happy ending for that tail."
