Fort Lauderdale crews rescue kitten trapped inside wall

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Fire rescue crews carried out a furry rescue, Sunday, that was a twist on a shopworn cliché.

Fort Lauderdale firefighters rescued a kitten. Instead of a tree, however, the feline found itself trapped inside a wall.

Rescuers used thermal imaging to find the tiny cat behind a wall in the homeowner’s bathroom, and decided to nickname it “Wall-E.” Get it?

Firefighters took the kitten back to their station to feed and wash it before taking little “Wall-E” to Broward Animal Care, where it will be available for adoption.
