Mungo the cat had to be rescued by the fire brigade after he fell down the back of a fitted wardrobe at 3am this morning.
Julian Tisi, 40 and his partner Amy Brooks, 29, were woken by Mungo's pitiful meowing at their home at Temple Road, Windsor.
Julian said: "We feared Mungo was injured and tried to deconstruct the wardrobe. But we reached a big panel that could not be moved and were at our wits' end."
They phoned the fire brigade on a non-emergency number and spoke to watch manager Lisa Lacey at Windsor who sent three firefighters round.
They sawed a hole through the back of the wardrobe so that Mungo could leap to freedom.
Julian, 40 is a finance manager at Centrica in Maidenhead Road. He stood as Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Windsor at the last General Election and was a candidate for the Royal Borough this year.
