The family had hoped the kitten might emerge on his own, but as the hours passed with no sign of him, it became clear that he was truly trapped. They knew they had to do something, and posted on social media for help.
Among those who read about the kitten's predicament were Valerie and Ron Spada, of Spada's Total Auto Repair. They volunteered to drive out and assist in the rescue. That's when they learned just how committed the family was to bringing their new kitty to safety.
"The husband told us, 'I don't care about the car. Just please get the kitten out,'" Valerie told The Dodo. "He helped us saw through the dashboard, removing the radio, the AC, the center console - everything. The car was demolished. The whole time he was just praying to God that the kitten is rescued."
