If a cat gets stuck in a tree, what can you do? Some people say that cats can get down on their own by stating, “You never see a cat skeleton in a tree, do you?” Of course, you never see a human skeleton stuck in a tree either, but that simply means that anyone stuck in a tree and dies will likely fall to the ground.

The reason cats get stuck in trees is because their claws make it easy for them to climb up, but difficult for them to climb down. Although the traditional solution might be to call the fire department, many fire departments don’t want to waste resources rescuing stranded cats. Instead, call a tree trimming service since they’ll have the equipment to pluck a stranded kitty out of a tree.
