The rescue operation was carried out in the Austrian town of Amstetten after the owner of the car discovered the cat trapped in the engine block when stopping at a petrol station.
After consulting with members of staff at the petrol station, it quickly became clear that the animal could apparently not get out from the predicament it had got itself into, and so emergency services were alerted.

Because it was impossible for the man to move the car, firefighters had to carry out the rescue operation on the spot and after successfully removing the cat, it was taken to a vet.
Fortunately, the cat was given a clean bill of health and was then reunited with its owners, who subsequently thanked the firefighters for their unusual rescue.
