I’ve shared a lot of stories about felines in trees with you. One human tried to help a feline and got stuck. And some fire departments are starting to come out to help felines stuck in trees because they do not want to have to rescue both a feline and a human.
That did not happen in Lincoln, Nebraska, recently. A feline got stuck in a tree approximately 30 feet above the ground. And because it was cold, the poor feline was shivering — possibly from fear as well.
Kind humans tried to coax the feline down with noms, but that did not work. The human who spotted the feline initially saw there were no good branches to climb down. They knew they needed help, and called authorities. But nobody would come to help.
The kind human refused to give up. They turned to social media, posting on Facebook to ask for help. And someone who runs a window cleaning service offered to help. They arrived on the scene and evaluated things. Unfortunately, the wind was too strong for them to safely use a long ladder to get to the feline. But this human promised to return the next morning to help.
The feline stayed in the tree overnight. The human with the window washing service showed up promptly the next morning. Fortunately, the winds slowed enough for them to use their ladder.
They put the ladder on the tree, and climbed up it with a carrier and a towel. But the feline wanted nothing to do with the carrier, and jumped on the human’s shoulders. They slowly made their way down the ladder, and soon the feline was safe.
The human who initially saw the feline took them in, and visited the white coated humans. They could not find a chip. Naturally, they wanted to adopt the feline, but state law requires a 30 day waiting period.
After the 30 days are up, the human who came to help the feline will give it a furever home. And they will make sure the only tree their feline climbs is inside their home!
