Reports are that a cat had been hit by a car in the car park and was hiding under a staff members car.


Fire service from Western Station, soon rushed into action after the caring staff tried to get the cat out by shaking a bag of well known cat treats ‘Dreamies’.


The poor cat was well and truly trapped, the fire service stabilised the car and removed the wheel and started to release the cat.
