Cat survives six weeks in chimney

A cat has survived for six weeks after falling down a chimney and getting trapped behind a fireplace at her Dorset home with no food or water.

Owner Marianne Wood went on holiday in December but had arranged for neighbours to feed cat Chloe and had built a hut outside for her to shelter in.

However after two days Chloe went missing and was only found six weeks later in the chimney.

Vets said she had lost nearly half her body weight and was severely dehydrated but would make a full recovery.
