A cat has been found safe and sound inside a sofa, 5 days after a couple donated the chair to a charity shop.

Pauline and Bill Lowe from Essex were very upset when they couldn't find their cat Crockett.

Luckily 5 days later the new owners of the sofa heard 'meowing' from it's base. When they opened up the sofa they discovered Crockett.

It's thought the 10-year-old cat got inside the sofa when staff from the charity shop took it apart at Crockett's home.
