Here's the story behind this photo published Dec. 14, 1988.

Buttons, a kitten belonging to the Randy and Susan O'Connor family of Los Osos, just couldn't resist poking his head through a fence knothole to see what he could see.

He found Trouble with a capital T: He became stuck.

It took some delicate work with a hammer and chisel, but Buttons was eventually freed.

Unfortunately, he then ran away.
