CUTLER RIDGE, Fla. – A Miami-Dade firefighter adopted a kitten after rescuing the feline from the frame of a car.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez said the driver of the car drove to Fire Station 34 in Cutler Ridge just before 9:30 a.m. Monday after hearing the kitten crying from inside the car.

Firefighters were able to trace the kitten's cries to the rear wheel-well liner, Benitez said.

A jack was used to remove the wheel and firefighters freed the kitten, who was stuck inside the frame of the car.

Benitez said the male kitten was stuck in a tight spot, but he seems to be doing well.

According to Benitez, the kitten has already developed a strong bond with his rescuer, so the firefighter has decided to take him home.
