A kitten has been freed from inside a brick wall of a home after being trapped for three days.
Odd Job Geoff Handyman Services in the Sutherland Shire, south of Sydney, filmed the rescue and posted it to Facebook on Friday.
“This poor little kitten was trapped behind this wall for three days in terrible heat,” the business wrote on Facebook.
“I jumped into the nearest phone box, [threw] on a cape and flew over there. And wow, it felt good.”
The video shows a man loosening a brick with a hammer and a chisel before removing it from the wall of the house entirely.
The kitten then emerges from the dark hole.
“She seems to be in quite good health from her ordeal,” Odd Job Geoff Handyman Services wrote on Facebook.
It is believed the kitten squeezed herself into the wall between a brick and deck support beam. She then got stuck between the timber and wall, and could not escape.
“The kind-hearted homeowner managed to get small amounts of water and food down there until it was set free,” Odd Job Geoff Handyman Services said.
It is believed the kitten was a stray and did not belong to the homeowner.
People applauded the rescuer, with some dubbing him a “superhero”.
