Firefighters in Texas, United States rescued a kitten found trapped in a discarded vehicle wheel.

According to news agency United Press International, its head stuck through a lug hole.

A concerned family brought the kitten, wedged in the metal part of the wheel, into a station.

They told police officers on duty that the feline had been stuck there for two days.

The San Antonio Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team then attempted to use soap to lubricate the kitten’s head.

But they ended up having to cut through the metal to squeeze back the head of the feline through the hole.

The department said the family who found the kitten then decided to adopt the animal after the rescue operation.

Meanwhile, authorities in Massachusetts successfully freed a dog stuck in the middle of an old tire.

According to various news reports published on social media and online, the rescued animal has a name Bella.

Falmouth Animal Control said animal control officers and firefighters responded to the scene immediately.

“Once on scene, initial attempts to free Bella from the tire went unsuccessful,” Falmouth Animal Control said in a statement.
