Lucky cat rescued from tight squeeze
Thursday March 30th 2017
A black cat struck it lucky after being saved from a particularly tight squeeze.
By getting wedged between a wall and a wooden fence in the Skewen area of Neath, South Wales, the feline became stuck in a gap only 2.5in (6.4cm) wide.
Luckily for the animal, a member of the public spotted it and got in touch with the RSPCA. The animal charity then worked with the individual to help release the cat. The wooden fence was pushed back, allowing the cat to escape to safety.
RSPCA animal welfare officer Paula Milton said the charity is grateful that someone took the time to report the incident.
She said: "The gap was just 2.5 inches wide, and the cat was completely stuck. The person had tried to entice the cat out with food, but the poor thing was wedged tight.
"Fortunately, we were quickly able to set the moggy free by moving the fence and picking up the cat."
Ms Milton added that the cat was ultimately safe and uninjured, meaning it could be immediately released.
