Lola’s mom immediately called the RSPCA, and together with the Merseyside Fire Service, rescuers worked from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. to free the frightened little kitten.
“We had to devise a plan to get her free, so at first we climbed up on the roof and were poking rods down to see if it would help her get down,” Matt Brown, an inspector with the RSPCA, said in a press release. “When they didn’t work, we took the fireplace off and, using long poles, managed to free her. It took some time but it was definitely a worthy job. We were all so pleased to have her free.”
