YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — It wasn't the kind of rescue Yuma firefighters usually handle. This one involved a cat with its head stuck in a dog food can.
Yuma Fire Department spokesman Mike Erfert says the cat was brought to Fire Station No. 4 by two women who found the cat in the street.
Phoenix TV station KNXV says the women told fire crews the cat was walking blindly and was nearly hit by a car.
They picked it up and brought it to the fire station to see if they could get some help.
Firefighter Ladd Elwood was able to cut off the can and free the cat.
The women thought they had seen the cat in their neighborhood before so they took the feline to see if they could find its home.
