A golden retriever named Buddy had to be rescued by Suffolk County Police Friday when his head got stuck in a Medford cat house, police said.

The furry fella stuck his snout in the frisky feline’s “Catfish” house in the owner’s backyard, but his noggin was just too big! Yikes! Thank goodness for the quick-thinking police officers.

Fifth Precinct Officers Stephen Lukas and Martin Gill, along with Sergeant Kit Gabrielsen responded to the backyard of 212 Holland Ave. at 11:10 a.m. Friday, police said, following a woman’s call that her beloved canine, Buddy, was stuck in a cat house.

The officers used a hammer and crowbars to dismantle the cat house and free the curious critter.

The identity and whereabouts of the cat during Buddy’s uninvited visit, and how that feline feels about all the commotion—and the destruction of his/her house (!!)—remains unclear.

Pretty sure it was not Mrs. Wooster, but as we know all too well, we just can’t be too sure. Mister Woolly would probably not do such a thing as Buddy, but Chewbacca—who knows!? This is why all our animals stay close and safe in our home, especially when it is cold outside.

We wish luck to Buddy and the mysterious cat, and also that he/she get a new house soon. (Perhaps with a wider front door!)
