The RSPCA came to the rescue of a cat very much in need in Acton , after he was found stuck between two walls.
Billy the cat was found trapped in a 15cm wide gap on Tuesday, January 17.
The RSPCA were called to Berrymead Gardens in Ealing after the owner spotted the black moggy trapped several feet down between a garden wall and a neighbouring house.
Alongside the RSPCA, fire and rescue teams were also called for assistance.
A hole was drilled to enable RSPCA Animal Collections Officer, Jill Sanders to rescue the pet.
She said: “There was no way he would have been able to get himself out without help - he was at least six foot down and there was nothing for him to grasp onto.
"I had to climb into the hole to get him, I am very thankful to the fire and rescue teams, as there was no way of reaching him without their help.
“We don’t know for sure how long he had been there, but the owner thought it possible that he had fallen the night before."
When rescued, Billy was found to be very dehydrated, so he was taken straight to the vet, otherwise, he escaped unharmed.
