Charities unite to rescue stricken kitten

This kitten got more than he bargained for when he went in search of shelter!

ParasolA member of the public called the RSPCA when they heard the kitten’s meows for help coming from a garden shed in Lewisham, London, and he was found with his head stuck in the parasol hole of a garden table.

The RSPCA called for the service of a nearby Celia Hammond Animal Trust (CHAT) vet - who was working out of hours and was able to sedate the exhausted kitten so the RSPCA could get him out.

RSPCA Inspector Nick Wheelhouse says: "The poor little thing was completely stuck and struggling to free himself.
