A cat used up one of its nine lives when it got stuck behind a bathroom wall and had to be rescued by fire fighters.

Part of the wall had to be knocked through to get to the frightened animal.

The moggy followed its owner up a ladder into the attic but while up there managed to fall into the soil stack.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “This cat had a lucky escape last night, after it got stuck behind a bathroom wall in Wilburton

“Fortunately firefighters from Cottenham were on hand to assist following a call from theRSPCA.

“On Monday (10) at 9.26pm, one crew from Cottenham was called to assist the RSPCA with the cat rescue on School Lane, Wilburton.

“The cat had become trapped after following the owner into the loft and falling into the soil stack void and ending up behind the toilet wall in the bathroom.

“Firefighters used specialist equipment to remove the wall around the cat and free it without injury.

“The crew returned to their station by 10.10pm.”
