Kitten freed after getting head stuck in wheel

Two Sheriff's Animal Control officers from Martin County, Florida, helped rescue a 10-week-old kitten that got itself in a tight spot.

The officers, Heather Belknap and Michele Thonney, said they couldn't believe their eyes when they found the kitten’s head lodged in the hole of a car wheel.

At first the officers said they weren’t sure if they were able to set the animal free unharmed, but they worked slowly and managed to dislodge the kitten without causing injury.

The kitten is now being cared for at a local veterinary hospital, and is likely to be up for adoption soon, said a post on the sheriff’s office Facebook page.

Truck wheel, not car.
Least I assume.
Or very small kitten.
And car with many wheel nuts.

Fair point.

According to the Martin County Sheriff's Office it was an 'RV tire rim'.

RV is short for recreational vehicle.

I know you're a big fan of the SUV acronym. :)
