Firefighters' dramatic Bromsgrove rescue after cat becomes trapped in between two houses

A BROMSGROVE cat used up one of its nine lives after becoming wedged in between two houses last night.

When the cat was found, the owners of the property in the Norton area asked another neighbour for advice and it was suggested they call the fire brigade.

The crew – from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service – arrived within a few minutes and quickly got to work.

Firefighters used tools to remove bricks, aided by a local builder who also provided a helping hand with his tools.

The rescue took around half-an-hour to free the cat, which was named ‘Cat’.

Neighbours came out to track down the owner of the cat who was finally found.




She, arriving to witness the last 20 minutes of the mission, said the adventurous moggy had been missing since 5.30am that morning.

A HWFRS spokesperson said: “Once freed, we left the cat in the care of the owner.”


Louise Short, who sent in these pictures, said: “A crowd of local residents had gathered to watch the drama unfold.

“They were all very thankful and appreciative of the firefighters’ determination.

“Personally, I think Cat should be renamed Lucky.”
