Cats always seem curious and motivated to climb up a tree but they often have fewer skills to help themselves get down again. That’s he problem a black cat found itself in when it climbed on top of a utility pole. The problem was that if the cat fell off or stepped in the wrong direction, it risked electrocution.
With the help of a bucket truck and a partner, Vermont Electric Cooperative worker Shawn Juaire donned protective gear and managed to rescue the stranded kitty. Since the cat lacked a collar, Shawn simply shooed the cat into a nearby barn so the cat could find its own way home. How long the cat had been stuck up that utility pole remains unknown, but at least the cat is safe (until it decides to climb another utility pole in the future).
