A cat in Louisiana was rescued after the feline somehow managed to get pinned at the top of a garage door.
According to a statement from the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Mike Scott responded to a call to for an “animal being stuck in a residence” on Dec. 29.
“A cat had been stuck between a garage door of a residence and the wall,” Scott was quoted as saying in the release. “Never in all of my years was I prepared to encounter what I saw upon my arrival.”
A photo from the scene shows the hind legs of a grey and white cat and its tail apparently squished between the closed garage door and framework of the residence. The feline’s front left paw is also seen peeking out from the top of the door.
According to the sheriff’s office, neighbours and some constructions workers were already attempting to free the cat when Scott arrived.
