Cat comes to its own rescue in UK

A video shared on social media by the London Fire Brigade shows the feline standing on a ladder pitched by the firefighters and placed next to a tree.

The cat can then be seen cautiously climbing down step by step, safely reaching the ground and running away.

"The poor cat had apparently been up there more than 48 hours, but seemed fine when it came down - it just ran off without so much as a thank you," Station Commander Richard Hamilton said in a statement emailed by the London Fire Brigade.
