A 7-week-old kitten was rescued by the Humane Society of Central Oregon after she got her head stuck in a hole under an HVAC unit at an RV dealership in Bend.

The tiny kitten named Lennox was able to cry for help Friday afternoon and All Seasons RV & Marine sales manager Brian Zinniker called the Humane Society for help.

Three staffers responded but they couldn't get the stuck kitten unstuck.

A nearby veterinarian provided a tranquilizer shot, which relaxed Lennox enough that her head could be pushed back through the hole.

The Humane Society's Lynne Ouchida said Lennox is a little underweight and in need of socialization, but otherwise she “looks healthy and feisty.”

She will eventually be put up for adoption.

A cry for help



Success!
