A 10-week-old stray kitten was rescued after his scary encounter with glue. Passerby’s found the kitten with his body partially immersed in epoxy glue used to cover cracks around a parking garage in Salem, Oregon. The black kitten had it’s share of bad luck when he found his legs, paws and belly frozen inside the glue. Good Samaritans called Friends of Felines, a cat rescue organization, to help rescue the kitten and dig him out of his predicament. After three days of trying to get the kitten out of the solid encasement, they took him to a local veterinarian because the kitten’s legs were stick stuck together and he wasn’t able to walk.
A veterinarian and his staff brainstormed on ways to remove the glue from the kitten whom they named Ace after calling a local Ace Hardware to ask for ideas in getting the glue off. The manager of the Ace Hardware could only offer up solutions which would expose the kitten to harsh chemicals so the vet techs decided to simply shave off the glue. Now Ace is half naked, skin exposed. While his paws still gave glue remnants, the vet and his staff are waiting for the kitten’s hair to grow out a little more before they tackle the rest.
The manager of the Ace Hardware, who was consulted about the glue, has signed on to adopt Ace who will be able to go to his new home in about a week.
