It's good that the firefighters got there and made the cat move .I have known cats getting stuck on a high tree for three days . She did it her way ,but came down ,that's what's important

I am glad the firefighters at least tried to get the cat out of the tree- many refuse, saying that the cat will come down when it wants to..- but most cats are too scared to climb down the tree (their nails are curved, so they can climb UP the tree, but it is very hard to climb DOWN a tre). This poor kitty was so scared that he basically did a controlled fall to get out of the tree- glad he landed on some grass to cushion the fall!
