Kind hearted man makes hole in his wall to rescue trapped cat
A kind-hearted Irishman made a hole in the wall of his own house in order to rescue a cat that had gotten trapped inside.
Campbell Baird discovered the trapped cat when the “walls started meowing” in his Carrickfergus home in Co Antrim.
After a quick inspection, he found 10-year-old Francee had managed to trap herself in the cavity between two walls.
Campbell immediately went to his tool box and began drilling and chipping a hole in the brickwork so that the frightened cat could be freed.
Thankfully, after a little encouragement Francee managed to squeeze out through the gap that Campbell had made.
The touching moment was filmed and posted online.
Campbell said on Facebook: “Just spent the last hour knocking holes in my wall to get it out. Think its front leg is broken.
“Not looking any damages repaired, just glad to get her out.”

The story had the perfect ending too, with Francee being freed uninjured and returned safely to her owners within a couple of hours.
