Kitten wedged between rocks rescued in Johnston

By News Staff

A frantic effort today in Johnston as firefighters used the jaws of life to rescue a trapped kitten.

The kitten got himself wedged into a tiny gap between two boulders no more than an inch wide.

It took firefighters more than 45 minutes to get the kitten out of the gap. Johnston Animal Control believed the kitten, who they’ve named "Soldier," was likely stuck for about two days before being rescued.

After getting a flea bath, food, water, and a check-up, Soldier is now all fixed and has already been adopted.
