He might have been a little down in the whiskers after arthritis left him unable to get up the garden fence.
But this cat is now on top of the world since his owners built him a special spiral staircase to help him get out on the tiles.
Now Tom the ginger Tabby will be able to join the rest of his feline friends in style thanks to the contraption, which helps him get up the eight-foot fence.
