KITTEN IN WHEEL

A panic stricken kitten that got her head stuck in a car tyre has been freed by quick thinking RSPCA staff...and a large dose of lubricant. The ten-week-old kitten is now recovering in isolation at RSPCA Birmingham Animal Hospital where she is receiving treatment for her eyes but is otherwise doing well.  Staff have named her Alloy.Alloy and her siblings were born to a feral cat in a garden shed in Medlicott Road, Birmingham.  Her cries for help alerted the home owner to a problem on 15 May when the kitten was found in the shed with her head wedged in a tyre. RSPCA inspector Herchran Boal who received and attended the call about the distressed kitten said: “I tried to free Alloy at the scene using margarine but it was impossible so I knew I was going to need help.  I took her to Birmingham Animal Hospital where after about one hour we finally managed to get her free using KY jelly.  I did at one point think I was going to have to take the tyre to the fire service so Alloy could be cut free so it was such a relief when she was successfully freed..
