Firefighters Rescue Cat, and Owner Who Tried to Rescue Cat, After Both End Up Stuck in Tree

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.”
