An infant school pupil whose cat got stuck between two houses has thanked the RSPCA by holding a bake sale at her school.

Ruby Nicholls, 10, raised £100 for the animal rescue organisation with a bake sale at Aboyne Lodge primary school.

The operation to rescue her trapped moggy last month lasted four hours.

The family feline got stuck between two garages in Beechwood Avenue, St Albans, on January 6 after trying to crawl from one end of the two houses to the other.

Animal collection officer Kate Wright, who was on hand to receive the cheque last Thursday (25), had to create a makeshift long-pole stretching as far down the gulley as possible to bring the cat’s ordeal to an end.

Kate said: “What Ruby did was really unusual because not many people are then inspired to go out and raise money for us off the back of a rescue, and to receive that amount of money from a school bake sale is very impressive.

“All the proceeds will go towards helping us in other animal rescues.
