Police in the Bavarian city of Bayreuth said a neighbor heard the cat's cries -- not to mention a vacuum left running for hours -- and feared there'd been a terrible accident.
The fire service sped to the scene Monday evening, but found only the cat and the machine.
A police statement Tuesday said the emergency call wasn't entirely in vain, though, because "at least the cat could be calmed down."
