Woman shocked after discovering builder plastered her cat into the wall
| Last updated
Anyone who has a cat will understand when I say they’re basically made of liquid.
For those of you who are dog people (tut tut) and have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about - what it means is that cats can wriggle their way into the smallest of nooks and crannies without any trouble. Well, most of the time.
But sometimes their slender, little bodies do get stuck somewhere they’re not supposed to. Enter: Stripes. Check out where this cat got himself stuck:
One woman’s moggie - named Stripes - decided to explore inside a wall and ended up getting plastered inside it. Yep, really.
Ashlin Hadden, the human responsible for the curious creature, was away for a work trip and returned to the sound of faint meows coming from behind her bathroom wall.
The Insurance agency owner had hired a contractor while she was away from home to renovate her washroom.
But while she was out of the house, it just so happened that her cat was cemented between the wall and her new bathtub for not one, not two, but three whole days!
I mean, if the builder didn’t like cats, he should have just said so.
Taking to TikTok under her username @ashlinhadden, she explained in the video: “So, I hired somebody to redo the bathroom.
“They pulled out the bathtub and put in the new shower thing,” she added, gesturing towards the wall.
"And as I’m sitting here trying to figure out where my cat is, I can hear the cat crying from somewhere in here."
"The stupid a** contractor drywalled my cat into the drywall underneath the (new) bathtub," she explained, with her cat having been safely reunited from the undoubtedly frightening ordeal.
"When the contractor went downstairs to get the paint he left the door open, he left the hole uncovered in the wall," she said in another video.
She added: “Obviously, the cat did what cats are going to do and was curious. I guess that’s why they say curiosity killed the cat."
But it wasn’t without some serious hulk-style strength that Ashlin was able to rescue her pet after she admitted to resorting to punching the wall down to grab Stripes and ruining the builder's handywork.
Thankfully, Stripes is more than ‘fine’ now after being checked over by the vet.
A word to all non-cat owner builders: always check for paws before plastering.
