Rescuing cats from trees may be firefighter behavior 101, but Oklahoma’s Tulsa Fire Department took things a step further, footage posted on June 25 showed, when it helped a cat-owner who had himself become stuck amid his effort to rescue his pet.
“A cat climbed high up into a tree,” the department said in information accompanying this footage. The cat’s “owner was so concerned for the feline that he climbed up to attempt a rescue. Unfortunately, they both found themselves in a dangerous predicament high above the ground, unable to get down safely.”
