One crew from the Oamaru brigade was called to the scene in Harbour St about 9.30am and had to remove a wood panel from inside the premises to free Bookie after he got wedged between the cat door and a wall.

Once freed, about 20 minutes after firefighters arrived, he was carefully pulled out. Although Bookie was tired and hungry, he was not injured.

Criterion Hotel owner Sue Cameron-Duncan said 1-year-old Bookie had been the hotel's resident cat since he was a kitten and was something of a celebrity on the street.
