Hapless kitten stuck in wall pops head out of hole as firefighter says ‘aww’

A frightened kitten was rescued from inside a wall by an Australian firefighter – with the ball of fluff caught on video poking its head out.

In the clip, a firefighter trying to find the cat jokes: "Let’s see what’s behind door number one."

He then removes a small section of the wall he had cut out carefully with a knife.

The befuddled-looking face of a ginger kitten suddenly pops out of the hole and the firefighter and female resident both saw "aww".

Apparently trapped in the cavity behind the wall, the kitten is then lifted through the hole by the firefighter as a colleague films.

The unnamed resident called the fire brigade when she could hear her kitten meowing but was unable to locate the animal and feared it had become trapped somewhere in the house.

Filmed in Sydney, New South Wales, the adorable footage has since gone viral since it was shared on Facebook by the state fire service.

Fire and Rescue NSW (New South Wales) wrote on Facebook: "Over the weekend, crews from Fire and Rescue NSW Station 062 Bankstown attended an un-fur-gettable rescue involving a curious ginger kitten trapped between walls of his owner's home.

"After using a thermal imaging camera, firefighters devised a purr-fect plan to rescue the trapped kitten by cutting through the gyprock (plasterboard) to make a small hole."

The fire service added: "Everyone is now the best of fur-ends with the happy ending to this tail."

One woman commented: "Great work avoiding a cat-astrophe. Glad the little kitty is ok."

A second viewer said: "Love our Fire Department."
