“Doof Doof” Kitty Cat down the volume. Jan 09

We got a call that a cat was stuck behind a speaker and could not get out for 3 days, when Nigel got there and took off the back board of the speaker box he realized the cats leg had got caught up around the speaker wire and he was unable to move. Nigel had to cut the wire and slowly untangle it from around the very swollen lower part of the leg, the cats foot had become very swollen and alot of damage had been done, from the extreme stress and the constant tugging to be released.

As you can see by the photos he had a very swollen foot and after getting a cuddle from his owner, he was then taken to the vet for treatment. Unfortunately due to the extensive injuries to his foot it had to be amputated, but he is now fine and learnt to survive with only 3 feet.

  1. it is inconcievable that a cat can literally be stuck inside a speaker, and rather than the cat going deaf, it lost its foot due to the nerve damage. Well done guys in another great rescue and putting a smile back on the cat owner.I’ll stay tuned for more extrodinary rescues.
