We’ve all faced the sadness of seeing a cat trapped in a tree and sometimes waiting hours or days for it to come down. Often it’s hard to find help and too many people disregard the dire nature of these emergencies saying, “Well, you never see a cat skeleton in a tree do you?” Yes, indeed, cats do suffer terribly this way as dehydration can lead to irreversible organ failure and a fall from such heights can bring on shattered bones.
Thankfully, there are good people who are willing to go out on a limb, quite literally, for cats in need. Enjoy this video of rescuer Gary Teates who shows tremendous patience and skill in the rescue of one cat who couldn’t wait to come down.
