A CAT had to be rescued by the RSPCA after falling off a fence and becoming wedged behind a shed in High Wycombe.

The cat - named Sebastian - was seen by a neighbour walking along the back wall of a garden in Hall Close before falling and disappearing behind a shed on March 16.

She contacted her neighbour and they could hear the poor kitty crying but they were unable to locate him, so they called the RSPCA after becoming increasingly concerned.

Animal Collection Officer Kate Wright attended and discovered Sebastian tightly wedged between the back of the shed and a wall.

ACO Wright said: “He had stopped crying and though I could see he was breathing, he didn’t look to be in a good way.” ACO Wright rushed him to the vets and decided to visit the address on the microchip - although Sebastian’s owners had moved out the new owners had a mobile number and they were able to be reunited.

Sebastian is recovering well.

After a short stay with the vets Sebastian is now home and recovering well.

“This really goes to show the importance of microchipping your cat and of keeping your details up to date,” ACO Wright added.
