This past Sunday, firefighters had to step in and rescue a kitten that somehow got inside Abe Lincoln's statue in Florida and failed to figure out a way to escape on its own.

When the firefighters arrived at the spot, the cat had already been trapped inside the statue for roughly 3 days, and most witnesses argue that its cries were getting weaker by the hour.

Rescuers had to drill a hole in the statue's backside in order to reach the animal, sources say.

Still, it all seemed worth it when the three-week-old kitten stepped into the sunlight and greeted the crowd.

Although the cat will have to be treated for dehydration, veterinarians say that it will get back on its feet in no time.

Needless to say, both the firefighters and the ordinary folks who witnessed the incident are clueless when it comes to explaining how it was exactly that the cat got inside the statue.
