This hungry mog had to be rescued by firefighters after it got its head stuck – in a tin of CAT FOOD.

The hapless pet was found wandering the streets in distress with its face poking out of the open end of the Felix tin.

Crews initially tried to slide its head out with washing-up liquid but when that failed they used a tin opener and finally a ring cutter to free the animal.

Tim Taylor, watch commander for West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, said: “A couple of people brought round a cat with a Felix tin of cat food stuck on its head.

“We tried a bit of soapy liquid to see if the head would slip out but when that didn’t work we used a tin opener on the other end so that the cut could see and then used a ring cutter to cut the cat out of it.

“The cat was a bit scared with the tin on its head and was scratching a bit but seemed alright once we had got it out.”

The cat, which was found in Crawley, West Sussex, at 8am on Sunday, is now at a nearby vets in the hope of locating a microchip and reuniting the cat with its owners.
