Cat Survives Unharmed After Getting Crushed In Garage Door

Police officers see just about every emergency situation possible while on the job, which is why they’re rarely left stunned when they arrive at the scene.

Yet even after 34 years of service, one Louisiana police officer was completely shocked when he arrived at a home and found a cat in desperate need of help. “A cat had been stuck between a garage door of a residence and the wall,” said Deputy Mike Scott in a post on Facebook. “Never in all of my years was I prepared to encounter what I saw upon my arrival.”

The cat named Bella had been taking a nap on her owner’s garage door while it was up, and when her owner left and closed the garage door, she got jammed between the door and the garage wall. Luckily, neighbors spotted Bella and called for help, and were ready to help when Deputy Scott arrived.

“The neighbors were very helpful as we cautiously removed the upper frame molding that allowed some space for us to remove the cat,” he said. “With a joint effort with neighbors we were able to remove the cat alive.” After inspecting the cat, they were stunned to see Bella was completely unharmed from the incident.

“I am not much of a cat person, but no one wants to see an animal suffer,” said Deputy Scott. “After losing so much from the flood, I was happy that I could save the homeowner’s cat. Thank God for miracles and good neighbors.”
