A cat has amazed its owner by learning to climb up the walls of her house to get back in when he finds himself locked out.
Charlie the cat can scale the walls of his master's home in Denny, near Falkirk, Scotland, to sneak indoors via the upstairs balcony door.
The ginger and white tomcat grips onto the sheer pebbledash surface to make his vertical ascent.
His owner Hannah Smith said she discovered her mischievous pet's talent when she let him out of the front door downstairs, only for him to reappear indoors moments later.
The seven-year-old cat's gravity-defying skills have since become a regular sight, earning him the nickname "Spider-cat" among bemused neighbours.
