A kitten which found its way into a chimney breast has been coaxed back into the open by its new owner.
Jinx, who is about 14 weeks old, had gone missing somewhere in the cottage of Andy Horner only a week after moving in.
He was eventually discovered when Andy heard some rustling in the cavity wall.
“I had to cut the light out of the fireplace to get him,” Andy told Press Association.
A video posted on Facebook shows the moment when Jinx is finally encouraged out of that hole the day after going missing.
“I was about an hour or so coaxing him out using some treats that he likes.
“Eventually I got him down but it took some patience. I still don’t understand how he got up there but it will cost me £150 in a replastering bill. I am just glad I hadn’t turned the fire on.”
