Cat trapped beneath freeway rescued safely

It wasn't a cat stuck in a tree, but experts spent Friday morning on an unusual rescue scene in downtown Houston.

Officials with the SPCA got out ladders, trying to coax a trapped cat out of a narrow space on the Pierce Elevated. The cat was stuck in a gap between beams in the 1400 block of Gray, near Austin. SPCA officials and deputies with the Harris County Precinct 1 Constable's Office were on the scene, and Houston firefighters were eventually called in to assist.

Officials didn't have much luck reaching the frightened feline until firefighters finally 'coaxed' it out with the help of a water hose.
