Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) Animal rescuers teamed up with firefighters in Wales to rescue a cat who ended up stranded on the roof of a three-story building.

RSPCA Cymru said Inspector Gemma Black responded to a report of a cat in distress in the Adamsdown area of Cardiff and she arrived to find the feline, named Meuzza, stranded on the roof of a three-story building.

Black contacted the South Wales Fire & Rescue Service and a crew arrived with a hydraulic platform to reach the roof of the building.


Meuzza was placed in a carrier and brought back down to earth. Black said the cat was reunited with his owner.

"It was a lovely moment to reunite Meuzza with his owner. He seems to have settled back in at home despite such a hair-raising climb," she said.
