Cat got stuck
You win the award for least informative post of the decade.
Next time I suggest you attempt to post BEFORE inbibing of the Amber Nectar.
Preferably QUITE A BIT before.
Really nice video! Made me tear up. Beautiful men! :)
Boy, kitties can sure get into some predicaments. Beautiful, silly kitty.
FWIW, it was a Russian cat.
Too much vodka?
They sure do get in some weird places! So glad he got out and was unhurt.
Glad they could spring him loose!
It's pretty straight-forward. A cat gets stuck in a suspension coil of a vehicle. Some helpful Rooskies remove the suspension coil from the vehicle and then pull the cat out of the coil. That's it.
I truly hate posts that run along the lines of: Look At This This Is So Interesting-
...With nothing but a link somewhere else.
Glad to know someone else had the intelligence to post some actual information for it.
But I would like to know how that yellow tabby got there. But not knowing the lingo . . .
I don't know the language, either.
Looks like it was first posted on prochan.com, a Russian-heavy site. According to Google, the Russian title translates as "Kitten rescued from certain death".
I would surmise, someone heard the kitty meowing and called in help.
Suggestions please , Gentlemen.
Meee YOW !!
Rush wakes up. It's 7:30. His cat had tried to wake him up at 5. But now, there's no cat. He calls for the cat. No response.
So, he takes a shower, hoping the cat will join him, as she usually does. But no dice.
Then he gets dressed and puts on his cochlear implant. Meow! ...
I said, "Oh-oh." 'Cause it sounded like a panic meow.
I realized she'd been meowing the whole time but I haven't been able to hear it because I haven't had my implant in. So I start searching anew. I look around and I can't find the cat anywhere. I look under the bed again. I start retracing steps. I open every cabinet I've previously opened. You've been through this. You know how this works. Every place that you look, you look again. I can hear the cat. The cat's somewhere. There's nowhere to hide.
So finally I walked to the doors that lead out to the patio, just to get a wide angle view of the room, and, lo and behold, on top of the canopy on the bed. Now, before you people start ripping into me for being out of touch for having a bed canopy, the bed canopy is there to stop the air-conditioning from giving us a cold every night. It deflects the air. I don't have a canopy there because we think -- it's a functional thing. Anyway, the cat's up on top of it and afraid to jump down.
So I'm saying, "Come on, Allie, come here." (making meowing sounds)
She's looking at me and crying. "Come on, just jump! I don't want to have to go get a ladder. Just jump! It's not that far to the bed." No, she just kept prowling around. I didn't even stop to think, "How did she get up there?" She had to climb the walls. She had to climb the walls to get up there. So, anyway, I had to go get a ladder, get the cat down. And there was no appreciation. She just ran straight to the food bowl and sat there and kept meowing, "Okay, where's breakfast?"
It was quite understandable. Cat got stuck.
Nice video, so glad they got the kitten out.
It reminds me of the time my son and I heard a meowing car in a parking lot. We finally tracked the meow to a tiny kitten stuck inside the front bumper. Less than 5 minutes after rescuing him, we found the little guy a new home.
How nice of those men to work so hard to save the kitten. Those men really love their cats. I love the way the rescuer cuddled
and comforted the cat. At first I was worried about the cat’s legs, if they were strained or broken, but it seemed to be all right.
It’s quite a cute little kitty, too.
Awww, what an adorable feline. And how wonderful to see those big tuff Russkies (?) cuddle the kitten when it came out. I sure hope one of them took it home rather than just turn it loose in the street.
I love our cats (and other critters) and have participated in our share of rescues down through the years. But crawling under a car that is jacked up that way is just a Darwin Award waiting to happen.
Yup, that’s a cat for you!
I remember seeing an article posted here a couple years ago where an auto mechanic found a kitten inside the airbox of a Chevy Tahoe.
You’re very welcome, and agreed on all counts. Sweet kitty seemed very grateful to be rescued.
Someone was overseeing from above. :-)
...With nothing but a link somewhere else.
Really, that's just about any post on here because most of them have a link to someplace else. At least this was a good video.
Poor kitty, probably doesn’t understand Russian any more than I do......
There were a few words of English in there. At the end, the man who pulled
the kitty out of the spring said, “You got outa there.” and laughed.
I never saw a more grateful looking cat in all my born days.
Thanks for teaching me what that thingamagig part of the car is called.
Maybe I underestimated these Russian guys. I didn't think they would have the kindness toward a cat to do that work to free it from the care. I guess it's just the reputation that Russians have.
