It's kinda like getting a cat out of a tree. Leave it alone, when it get hungry and thirsty it will come down/out.

Is there access underneath to grab it? Im assuming the tv is stored in the down position and rises up. Does it have cabinet drawers you can remove?

Disassemble the cabinet, they are usually only held together with staples (but always from the wrong side) and plan to replace the bottom luan board as that usually is what holds the back panel in place.

First try water and their favorite food nearby and see if they can find a way out.

The first report of this was August 27. If the kitty isn't out by now they may as well yank out what is left with a coat hanger, a sponge and a Dixie Cup.
