So, we have all seen videos of fat cats and dogs trying to squeeze through their little door to get into the house, but this is something you never thought you would see.
The citizens of Bensheim, a town in Germany, witnessed a rescue operation that required a real fire brigade. People gathered to see what was happening and soon enough they saw it.
The fire brigade was saving a rat. An actual, real-life rat. The poor thing was stuck in a sewer cover. It was trying to squeeze through one of the gaps and just got stuck.
The sewer Chubster
Besides the fire brigade, the citizens called Rhein Neckar animal rescue team, who helped the fire brigade save the rat. To sum it all up, it took up to eight people to save a rat. Hilarious!
According to one of the animal rescuers, the rat was probably on his usual route but forgot it put a lot of weight. Rats can usually squeeze through anything as long their had can go through.
The rat looked like it came out of a cartoon
However, besides being able to stick his head through the hole on the sewer cover, the poor guy wasn’t able to squeeze his body through.
The photos show Cubster popping his head and relentlessly trying to get out, mostly because it saw a ton of people there.
At one point, Chubster looked like he was trying to ask them for help
The reason why he was that fat was Winter – it was the extra weight he gathered during the colder months. We’ve all been there.
Many people are disgusted by rats, but these guys just wanted to help our little Chubster
It didn’t take much for Chubster to be rescued, and soon enough, he was on his way
And the internet was in love with Chubster
Here are some of the reactions they shared.
And the Ratatouille/Remy reference… brilliant!
And we were all hoping for a batter spirit animal this year, but you gotta work with what you got.
This one most accurately depicts the situation.
But this face is what won me over. Just look at it! Adorable!
Here’s the full video – enjoy.
