A curious kitten has been rescued by firefighters from a toilet outflow after negotiating the U-bend.
It appears that eight-week-old Mr Bingley jumped into the toilet and attempted to explore what lay beyond.
The kitten's owners, from Cotham, Bristol, were unable to rescue the animal, so called the fire brigade.
Firefighters managed to free it unharmed after removing the toilet bowl. " I guess it's used one of its nine lives," a spokeswoman said.
"We received a call at 11.18pm last night that an eight-week old kitten had got trapped inside a toilet," she added.
"Somehow it had managed to get past the U-bend. Its owners couldn't get it out.
"Firefighters removed the toilet and handed the cat back to its grateful owners."
