It is still not entirely understood how the little cat came to find itself inside the great marble edifice of the stone faced forefather of modern America but he sure did seem to be happy to be free after spending three days trapped.
“I dont see how a little kitten, a 3-week old kitten could have gotten up there,” Daniel Davis of the Humane Society told WKMG in Orlando. “It couldn’t crawl up there.”
Firefighters were forced to drill a hole through the top of the statue large enough for one of their number to climb inside and free the little animal, who was quickly dubbed “Abe” by his rescuer.
The lucky little cat has also found itself a new home with the curator of the President’s hall of fame curator.
