A cat has been rescued after getting stuck 21 feet up an oak tree.

Moritz, a black and white cat, got himself trapped up the tree in the Blaenrhondda area of Treorchy, South Wales.

And it is not the first time the adventurous cat has got himself in a pickle.

The RSPCA went to the scene and enlisted the support of the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service who used ladders to reach Moritz and bring him back to safety.

Moritz is now safely back with his owner Maria Marchl following his ordeal.

"Moritz is an adventurous cat, and this is the second time he has got himself stuck up a tree - this time an oak tree," she said.

"I rescued Moritz three years ago. I'm so happy he is safely back home after this ordeal, and am very grateful to the RSPCA and the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service for helping him."

RSPCA Inspector Simon Evans added: "It's always nice to be involved in a happy ending - and it was great to be able to help reunite Moritz with his owner."
