A tree disposal service worker in Virginia came to the rescue of a cat who spent four days stuck in a tree about 50 feet above the ground. Grace Perrine said her cat, Scarlet, was chasing a squirrel when she ascended a tree in her yard and found herself unable to climb down. Scarlet refused to be coaxed down, and an attempt by firefighters to reach her with a ladder only caused her to become spooked and flee further up the tree.
… Perrine turned to Facebook for help, and was put in touch with Brett Parker of Match Cut Tree Bro’s LLC. Parker rigged up a lasso device, like the animal control would use, to lasso the cat which was on the very tip of a limb. Scarlet was safely returned to solid ground.
