Kitten Whose Head Was Stuck In The Bottom Of A Garbage Bin Gets A New Lease On Life


It’s not easy living in the streets, with no home, and no food. How much more if you are a tiny, helpless kitten?

The 5-month-old kitten below is homeless and all alone. She had to fend for herself and search for her own food. To survive this poor kitty was looking for food inside a trash bin. But when people were emptying the bin, she panicked and tried to escape in a hole at the bottom of the bin. But her head got stuck in the hole.

Some kindhearted people reported the stuck kitten to Steve Morrall, an investigator with the Royal Society For The Protection of Animals (RSPCA). When Steve got to the scene, he saw the kitten’s head sticking out from the bin.

Steve realized that he couldn’t handle this alone, so he called firefighters for assistance. For this rescue, they had to be very careful not to hurt the little kitty.

Luckily, the kitten was rescued with no injuries–thanks to her rescuers’ quick thinking, a funnel, and lots of lubricant!

Thanks to the rescuers, the kitty now named Dusty, is safe and in good hands! We hope that Dusty has found a loving, forever home!
