Rescuing Cats From Super Tall Trees

Tom Otto and Shaun Sears are professional arborists (tree guys) and cat lovers. The brothers-in-law volunteer to rescue cats that are stuck in trees. See, in Washington state, the trees can be very tall, and cats can be very scared once they get too high. Firefighters aren't equipped for that kind of height, even if they had the time to rescue cats.

Their project is called Canopy Cat Rescue. Since they don't charge owners for rescuing their cats, the organization relies on donors. -via Tastefully Offensive

Once one of our cats when it was a kitten decided to climb up a tree behind our garage. I didn't have a ladder, so I went out onto the garage roof and held a long ix6 board up to where she was. She obliged by walking down the board to safety. I heard someone clapping and turned to see a passerby who was watching the whole thing from the end of our driveway. The cat must have learned a lesson as she never did anything like that again.
