It was briefly lights out for Thomas Jefferson.
The orange tabby, who shares the name of the American founding father, is back on solid ground after he grew trapped inside of an underground blizzard piping Tuesday for what approvals guess was about seven hours, barrage officials said.
“He searched squalid and wet but he’s all right, ” Brian Haas, a Public Information Officer for Nashville’s Fire Department, told The Huffington Post.
Haas said a neighbor first listened a feline meowing around 6 a.m ., but “didn’t reckon much about it.” It wasn’t until the early afternoon, when the neighbor sounded the cat’s calls again, that he called for help.
Haas said parties speculate Thomas Jefferson was climbing along the home’s third-story trough when he jumped off the side and into the pipe.
“It travels underground to an underground drainage hose and the end of the tube had get humbled so he couldn’t got to get out, ” Haas said of the underground tube.
Photos taken at the situation captivated the fortuitou feline being reunited with his owned, who the fire department identified as Watkins College President Joseph “J.” Kline.
Kline’s first reported statements to his “cat-o-nine-tail”: “What were you thinking? ”
What were you thinking, certainly!
