NORTH ROYALTON, OH – It was a true “Independence Day” for one little North Royalton kitty.

Seems that the little girl got curious and snuck into the wall of a North Royalton home when a cover was left off of an air duct vent. And she got stuck in there with all the pipes and duct work. So her family called in A-Z Plumbing to see if they could help.

They located the kitten inside the wall by using a camera.

As luck would have it, the worker dispatched to the rescue happened to be from Texas. And he was an ace with the lasso. So he fashioned a lasso, dropped it into the wall area and was able to lasso the furry little explorer under her arms and pull her to safety.

You can hear the cries of joy from her family as she’s pulled to safety. And the kitten chimed in for a bit there too.

And yes, she is a rescued cat – both when she found her forever family, and once again on this Fourth of July.
