A fat cat struggled to climb over a baby gate.

Josh Herndon was at his parent’s home in Marietta, Georgia, when their moggy Alley tried to get over a fence in their house.

As the 14-year-old slowly and surely clambered up the crosshairs, she looked at Josh as if for help before tentatively reaching the ground.

Josh said: “Alley has always been a pretty unathletic cat.

“She loves eating dog food for some reason.”
