Despite their ability to climb up, cats don’t have an equal ability to climb down. That’s why cats often find themselves stuck in trees after climbing too high. When Briar-Rose Paton realized her 4-year old cat had been missing for two days, she discovered he was trapped in a neighbor’s tree.
“I feel so bad he’s been up there all last night [Saturday] and I could hear him meowing and I couldn’t do anything about it. There was no way I could reach him as the tree branches were too brittle. I couldn’t sleep all night worrying. I’m was so upset, I love him so much.”
Firefighters arrived to rescue the cat, which promptly jumped to another tree and eventually found its way back to the ground. Although the firefighters never reached the trapped cat, the cat did find its way back home again.
