A kitten trapped in a statue for three days has been rescued, according to authorities in Clermont, Fla. The three-week-old kitten trapped in the statue was found inside the statute of Abraham Lincoln, and rescuers worked fervently to try and save the kitten trapped in the statue.

Staffers at the Presidential Hall of Fame, where the kitten trapped in the statue was found, heard the meows of the kitten trapped in the statue. However, they are unsure how the kitten trapped in the statue was managed to get into the statue in the first place.

"I don't see how a little kitten could have gotten up there," Humane Society spokesman Daniel Davis told WKMG-TV in Orlando. "It can't crawl up there."

Fire officials had to drill a hole in the top of the statue and lower a fire fighter inside to take the kitten trapped in the statue out.

The kitten, named Abe, is expected to make a full recovery. He was treated for dehydration and will go up for adoption when he is ready. The museum's director, John Zweifel, aims to adopt him.
