Meow, WTF?

Cat caught in a coil spring. How did it get there? Does it prefer retained or cones?

Honey Badger has an opinion on the cat's perplexing circumstance...

I wonder how often in a firefighters career they actually have to rescue a kitty. I still can't figure out how or why it got in there...

If you buy me enough beer and give me enough time - I can bore you with many a pet-rescue story.

(... But never from a coil spring!)

I always look under the Rover for any major leaks… now I have to add kittens in the springs to the list.

They would probably soften the ride a bit depending on the breed.

I thought pussy willow was more of a grey? Isn't the truck blue in the vid?
