A feral cat had been stranded in a tree for three days. Not just any tree, but a really tall pine tree. The cat was so high up, I’m not even sure how anyone spotted him. Thankfully someone did see him up there and called animal rescuers Hope For Paws.
They arrived on the scene and made some rescue attempts, but the commotion only caused the kitty to climb even higher. The rescuers were going to need to some assistance.
Loreta and Selena from the Hope For Paws team reached out to a nearby Fire Department. It was a slow day, and the firefighters were more than happy to help a furry feline in need. They checked out the situation and felt that they’d need a really tall ladder to help get this cat down.
Thankfully, they had one on hand.
A Cool Cat In A High Place
After three days in a tree, this cat actually looks pretty calm and collected.
Some people volunteered to help out.
Ground support was ready with blankets. If the kitty slipped, they would catch him.
A firefighter was able to get a gentle snare on the cat.
But then the cat got spooked and lost his footing.
A Fall And A Catch
He wound up tumbling through the branches, but the rescuers were ready with open arms to grab him!
The poor kitty had no idea the humans were there to help. However, they managed to get him to safety.
He looks pretty tired here, and relieved at the same time. This story has a happy ending.
A New Name And A New Colony
The team named the cat Marshal. Can you guess where Marshal is living?
Thanks to L.A. Animal Rescue he is now residing in a feral cat colony.
