Firemen Rescue Cat in Tree -and Its Owner, Too!

A cat in Leatherhead, Surrey, England had to be rescued from a tree by the fire department. That in itself is not newsworthy, but the firefighters also rescued a rescuer! A 6-year-old Maine Coon cat named Jadis was 30 feet up in a fir tree, afraid to come down. So owner Mike Wall, after trying other methods with neighbor Michael Jordan, climbed a ladder to get her while his wife Chris watched.
Mr Jordan said: "It was really difficult getting the ladder up and then it twisted against the trunk, which made it awkward to get back down safely from that high."

With Mr Wall in the same predicament as Jadis, the fire brigade were eventually called to the rescue at about 2.40pm.

Mrs Wall said: "He wasn't very happy. He was up there for about 40 minutes, so it definitely wore him out."

Thankfully it didn't take much longer until both Mr Wall and Jadis were safely back on terra firma and the firefighters didn't go home empty handed.

Mrs Wall said: "The neighbours were wonderful and I kissed the fireman when he came down and then burst into tears. I hadn't any wine so I gave them a bag of cat biscuits as a small thank you because one of them had cats himself."
