Calico cat rescued after being trapped under roof-mounted solar panels

This is a novel way for a domestic cat to be stuck in a high place. Trees are the favourite but I think that this is the first time a cat has been trapped under solar panels on the roof of a neighbour's house. The cat was meowing and concerned local residents called the RSCPA who in turn called the local firefighters who responded quickly. This was definitely a case for professionals with experience of working in high places. Apparently the firefighter who captured her persuaded the cat to move to one side which released her.

She is microchipped. It was scanned by the RSPCA who discovered that she lived nearby. She raced off hopefully directly back home. It is common for inside/outside cats to climb onto neighbouring roofs and travel across them to neighbouring gardens. They love the high vantage points. They are unafraid.

The cat's name is Rocket. The firefighters are with the South Wales Fire & Rescue. The location is: Dinas Powys house in the Vale of Glamorgan.
