A small kitten was rescued in Lauderhill, Florida on Sunday after being stuck in a wall for days (video below).

“It’s an excitement for everybody but we are glad the kittens are out and safe,” Alberta Peterson, a sister of the cat’s owner. told NBC Miami.

The family heard the cat meowing for days, but could not find the kitten and finally called 911. Firefighters came out to the home and drilled numerous holes in walls, but could not locate the cat.

“It took two agencies and approximately 10 firefighters to get this kitten from a wall, it was pretty well hidden” stated Lieutenant Jerry Gonzalez. “This usually doesn’t happen and it’s pretty rare,”

After firefighters inserted a small camera in the wall, and followed the "meows" they were able to locate the kitten.

After the cat was rescued, the family named the it "Survivor," for obvious reasons.
