The 2-week-old mixed breed cat got smushed in a tight spot near a home in Johnston, Rhode Island, according to WPRI.com, and his mewing got the attention of a passerby who called authorities for help.

Firefighters arrived and used the Jaws of Life to get the kitten out of its jam. He has since been adopted and been named Soldier, for being “a little trooper.” Awww.
