WILMSLOW firefighters are feline very pleased after Rory the cat took a huge leap of faith.

The fire crew were called to a cat stuck in a tree, and used a 'makeshift trampoline' for the animal to jump into from its precarious perch on a branch.

The crew posted a video on twitter showing the rescue.

A firefighter said: "That's one small step for a cat, one giant leap for catkind!

"Rory decided to take matters into his own hands - five firefighters and two ladders later he decided to self deploy on to our makeshift trampoline."
