A ginger cat was found by a shocked passerby who noticed the cat had been impaled on three metal fence posts. The passerby called for help and firefighters cut away the metal posts to rush the cat to a veterinarian.

Amazingly, the cat survived the procedure to free him from the metal posts. While there’s still risk of infection, the cat seems to have survived the major physical damage. Since there’s no microchip in the cat, there’s no way of finding the owner unless the owner happens to read the newspaper and spot the cat.

Hopefully the cat will survive with nothing more serious than physical scars. The next time this cat decides to jump, it will likely look first, which is good advice for anyone even if you aren’t a cat.
