Firefighters are used to responding to crashes, medical emergencies and the occasional house fire, but this was a first-time call for the members of Engine 7. The Enterprise reported Lt. Christopher Gallant had previously taken part in a cat rescue in his career (although he doesn’t remember the details), but he knows it wasn’t quite like the situation on Wednesday morning. The initial call was made to Brockton police at 10:07 a.m. Dispatch alerted the Animal Control Department that a woman had driven her SUV into the Shell gas station parking lot on East Ashland Street “panicking” because her cat was stuck “pretty good” underneath a seat. The animal control officer responded and tried to assist the woman and her daughter, but was unable to free the cat.
