Fire Chief George Altice said firefighters usually wouldn't rescue a cat from a tree because they usually find their own way down, but this cat was splashing around in the toilet bowl with it's leg caught in the trap.
"I don't know how the cat got in there," Altice
said."I'm sure it's a curious cat."
Firefighters responded to the house on Bryant Street at about 10 a.m. After trying unsuccessfully to extricate the cat, firefighters had no choice but to break the toilet, Altice
said firefighters are public servants and they don't mind rescuing cats from time to time because they know Belmont residents love their pets.
"People love their pets," Altice
