Cat in Tree for Six Weeks

Lucky found himself 90 feet up in a tree in Hartsville, South Carolina and was so frightened he didn't come down for six weeks! In fact, he would still be up there if it weren't for a brave tree climber. The fire department, a utility company, and a tree service had tried several times to bring the cat down, but didn't have equipment tall enough to reach him. Lucky’s owner, Richard Nall, was relieved to have his cat back.
“He was alert, his eyes were wide open, ( he was) skinny as a rail, very dehydrated, and probably was in his last few days,“ Nall said of Lucky’s condition after he was freed from the tree.

Family friend Debbie Wilkes immediately transported Lucky to his veterinarian in Bishopville.

“He was running a temperature and they immediately put him on antibiotics, started IV fluids and gave him vitamin shots and offered him a can of food and he ate it all up,“ Wilkes said.

The cat lost nearly half his body weight, but is expected to recover. Link -via Arbroath

Also, I'm guessing the fire dep't took time out of their day to try to help Lucky when they would just have been sitting around at the firehouse, waiting for a fire. I.e. not so many tax dollars, VONSKIPPY. Geez.
