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.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
