Arkansas Firefighters Shocked By What They Discovered Stuck Inside An ATM

Sharing is caring!

Kittens, those tiny, adorable furballs, can often be clumsy and inattentive. Because of that, they can be found stuck in the most unusual and unexpected places, just like this furbaby.

This particular kitten had quite an adventure as it was accidentally discovered stuck inside an ATM. Thanks to the group of brave firefighters who came to the rescue, the kitten was saved and provided with the opportunity of a lifetime. 

This unusual rescue story unfolded in Arkansas when someone reached out to the Fort Smith Fire Department about the kitten trapped inside the ATM in front of the local Regions Bank.

The mystery of how this tiny kitten ended up stuck inside an ATM remains unsolved, but one thing is certain – this incident changed its life forever. 

After a safe rescue, the kitten was taken to the Fort Smith Animal Haven shelter in Arkansas, where it was bestowed with the name “Cash.”

The surprising nature of this rescue left everyone amazed, including Ashley Deane, a vet tech at the Fort Smith Animal Haven, who expressed her astonishment, saying:

“This is actually my first experience with a cat getting stuck in an ATM. You know, I never thought that somebody would be able to go up and make a withdrawal and get a cat out instead of some cash, so now we have both.”

Upon arriving at the shelter, Cash underwent a thorough examination, revealing that he was underweight. Fortunately, he didn’t have any other health issues, which allowed him to recover quickly, especially once he was introduced to food.

Cash turned out to be quite the foodie with a bit of a feisty personality. As Ashley explained:

“He’s a little spicy just ‘cause he’s scared, which is typical, and it’s gonna happen. Generally, after a couple of days with our handlers caring for them, they become less spicy and just a little bit mild so they can come a little bit more workable.”

Just as Ashley predicted, Cash gradually transformed with each passing day, becoming more affectionate and cuddly. Alexis Bloom, a cat and kennel tech at the shelter, described Cash’s transformation:

“Once you pick him up, he’s just a big purr box, that’s all, he’s just a huge purr box, he’s the sweetest little baby.”

Cash spent some time at the shelter, receiving the love and care he needed until he eventually hit the jackpot and found his forever home.

He now enjoys love and happiness with Dr. Sills and his family, where I hope he will be cherished and adored for the rest of his days!
