The firemen tried everything to free the poor kitten, but to no avail. They gave the trapped kitten some water while they worked, which he graciously accepted. He hadn't given up yet, even though it seemed that everyone else was about to.
Finally, they tried one more method to save the kitten.
"Someone had the idea to use the machine they previously used to tilt the post in the junction of the top and bottom instead of only on the top," the user wrote. "After they did, BOOM, the post busted and there was just enough space left for the cat to be free!"
The little kitten was terrified of all the commotion at first and tried to run away, but the firemen were able to secure him before he could escape. He was scrawny and filthy, and Zerofatorial and her parents decided to take him home with them for the night before bringing him to a shelter in the morning.
Despite finally being safe, the little kitten was still so scared, and hissed at his rescuers and refused to let them touch him. He did, however, take a liking to the family's other three pets, and started bonding with them immediately.
