ASCENSION PARISH, La. – It took a sheriff’s deputy, several neighbors and construction workers to save a cat trapped between a garage door and a wall.

Deputy Mike Scott of Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a cat that had gotten stuck.

“Never in all my years was I prepared to encounter what I saw upon my arrival,” said Scott, according to a Facebook post by sheriff’s office.

The cat had somehow gotten its body stuck between the garage door and the wall when it closed. By the time Scott arrived, several neighbors and construction workers were already working to free the cat.

After several hours, they managed to remove some molding from the house and free the cat.

“With a joint effort with neighbors we were able to remove the cat alive,” said Scott.

The cat’s owner arrived after crews managed to remove the cat from the garage door. The deputy and the cat’s owner checked him out for injuries, but found nothing wrong with the cat.

I’m not much of a cat person, but no one wants to see an animal suffer,” said Scott.
