Cats seem to get stuck in trees fairly often. That’s why people try to rescue them, which can be troublesome if you don’t have the right equipment. So when a man spotted a cat trapped in a tree in Norfolk, Virginia, he climbed the tree to rescue the cat. Unfortunately, once he got in the tree, he couldn’t get back down again.

That’s when firefighters showed up with a ladder that could reach both the man and the cat. Firefighters brought both the man and cat down to safety, and hopefully neither one will think about climbing a tree again.
