A cat's survival has been hailed a miracle after it was found impaled on two metal fence posts in Cricklewood.
The ginger and white cat may have slipped or accidently jumped onto the 8ft tall railings in Flowers Close on Friday at 3.50am which narrowly missed all his vital organs.
The RSPCA called the fire services to rescue to the feline which is currently recovering from major surgery.
Nicole Broster, deputy chief inspector at animal charity, said: “In all my years with the RSPCA I have never seen anything like it. This poor cat literally had two metal posts protruding through his body.
“It’s an absolute miracle that this cat is alive, and even better, it’s looking like he won’t even have to have the damaged leg amputated. In fact, he is doing so well he’s already up on his feet and walking which is astounding, I can’t quite believe how lucky he is.”
She added: “The fire service was absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank them enough.
“Not only did they cut the railings, they also transported the cat to the nearest vets in Hendon as the railings wouldn’t fit in my vehicle.”
The RSPCA is appealing for any information as to how the cat got impaled as no cause is known.
Anyone with any information can call the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
