West Jakarta Fire and Rescue Agency officers have rescued a kitten stuck inside a 19-liter water jug in Tegal Alur, Cengkareng, West Jakarta.

Eko Sumarno, the agency’s operational chief, said residents had found the animal inside the vessel.

“They felt sorry for the cat, so they took it to a fire station in Cengkareng,” he said on Friday, as quoted by kompas.com.

The kitten’s head was stuck in the neck of the jug. Eko said it let forth “a pained meow” as it struggled to escape.

The firefighters cut out the bottom of the receptacle and made a cut in its neck remove the cat. They used a spoon to shield the cat from the blade.

“It took about 30 minutes to get the cat out of the jug,” said Eko, adding that the residents took the cat home after the rescue.

Firefighters in Jakarta have received a number of emergency requests unrelated to fires, including removing a ring stuck on someone’s finger and rescuing cat from the bottom of a well. (mfp)
