RSPCA WA is looking for the owners of a cat that had to be rescued by firies today after he became trapped between two garage walls in Beckenham.

The cat who has been named “Ralph” was spotted by tradesmen working at a nearby job site stuck in a gap on Carmichael Street.

The tradies called Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) officers who worked for about three hours to free Ralph.

They took Ralph to the RSPCA WA Animal Care Centre this afternoon where he was sedated and placed on a drip to help rehydrate him.

A RSPCA WA Facebook post said Ralph had grazed the fur off both his shoulders in his struggle to escape and “his teeth are quite worn down, suggesting he may have used those in his effort to escape”.

“Had it not been for some tradies working on a site nearby who heard him, his fate could have been far worse, especially in today’s heat,” the post continued.  

“He seems quite tame, but he is not microchipped and is not desexed.” 

If you recognise Ralph, or think you know his owners, please get in touch with the RSPCA Shelter on 9209 9323.
