A family from Bristol were alarmed when they found a stray cat wedged inside their reclining sofa.
The cat - who the family had been feeding at the time - had wandered into their home on Gosforth Road and hid under the sofa.
But when the children reclined the chair with the pet unknowingly beneath them, her tail got trapped in the mechanism.
Luckily the homeowner had the right tools and set about dismantling the sofa while the RSPCA officer helped keep hold of the cat and keep her calm.
They were able to free her and she was absolutely fine, if a little shaken up.
It’s not the first time an animal has ended up in a tight spot thanks to a reclining chair.
RSPCA officers and a crew from Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service were called to a home in Salford in 2015 after a dog called Cagney got herself stuck in an electric reclining chair.
Thankfully, firefighters used their specialist equipment to cut him free.
