While its little head fit through, the kitten overestimated the size of the opening, and ended up stuck.

When animal control officers responded to the call, they couldn’t believe their eyes.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said,

At first officers were not sure if they were able set him free without causing injury, but they worked slowly and did not give up. With care, precision, and perseverance, Officers Belknap and Thonney managed to free the kitten from the tight spot without injuring him.
