The woman called for help after hearing the cat's plaintive meowing. AA PhotoIn regular countries, stray cats usually get stuck in trees or in chimneys, but in Turkey, they also have to watch where they put their paws thanks to safety concerns coming from the country’s constantly-renewed infrastructure.
A street cat in the coastal resort town of Bodrum that was trapped under a heavy pavement stone from a nearby construction site was miraculously rescued after a passerby heard its cries underfoot, as she was walking late on Oct. 7.
The firefighters dispatched to the scene eventually needed the assistance of a heavy-duty machine to dig into the pavement and save the cat.
