Rescuers in Florida said they drilled a hold in an Abraham Lincoln statue to free a 3-week-old kitten that somehow became trapped inside the monument.
The local Humane Society and Minneola Fire Department said they drilled a hole in the Lincoln statue Sunday afternoon at the President's Hall of Fame in Clermont and a firefighter climbed inside to rescue the kitten, WKMG-TV, Orlando, reported Monday.
The Humane Society said the cat was dehydrated and hungry. The feline is being cared for by a veterinarian until it is well enough to be adopted, the rescuers said.
A curator at the President's Hall of Fame said the museum is hoping to adopt the cat and name him Abe.
