Brian Haas, a Public Information Officer for Nashville’s Fire Department, told The Huffington Post that a neighbor first heard a cat meowing around 6 a.m., but “didn’t think much about it.”

It wasn’t until the early afternoon, when the neighbor heard the cat’s cries again, that he called for help. According to various sources, it was believed that Thomas Jefferson was climbing along the home’s third-story gutter when he plunged off the side and into the pipe.

I’m sure the cat is not too sure what happened either, but he sure is grateful for the Nashville Fire Department!
