Catastrophe is avoided.

A CURIOUS cat that got wedged inside a tumble dryer vent was eased free with the help of a lolly stick and butter.

The stricken pet's owner called the RSPCA after finding she had crawled into the vent at his flat in Kidderminster on Thursday.

RSPCA animal collection officer Glenn Baird hatched a plan to slide the cat free using everyday items, after struggling to reach into the narrow space with his hands.

"All you could see was her tail poking out of the end," he said.

"I put butter inside the pipe using a lolly stick, removed the vent cover with my hammer, and pushed her. Luckily, she slid right out."
