A one-year-old cat got herself in a pickle. She crawled into a storm drain to explore, but as she tried to exit, her head became wedged in the grate.

The Winchendon fire department received a call about the cat needing help, they quickly came to the rescue. "When we arrived the cat was barely breathing and moving as she was hanging from the grate," The Winchendon fire department wrote on Facebook.

They immediately removed the grate and put it in an upright position, so the kitty could breathe and relax.
