Cat stuck in a tree
I have an 11 month old female tortieshell manx that is currently residing about 60 feet off the ground in a hickory tree. Since I was unable to find her all day yesterday, I'm assuming she's been up there since sometime yesterday afternoon. She has been staying in a large crook in the tree and every once in a while she'll shimmy down about 10-15 feet to another branch and stay there squalling for a while, then move back up to the crook. About a week ago she got herself stranded up another tree, but was only about 20 feet off the ground. My husband was finally able to rescue her after 2 nights up there, but there is no way to get to her this time. I was a vet assistant for a number of years back in college and beyond, so I know there is no animal rescue or ASPCA to call around here, and of course the fire dept wouldn't have any more luck than we would, if they were allowed to actually do that sort of thing. I really wish I'd left her in the tree last time for a bit longer and let her learn how to get out on her own, but it was colder than normal and I didn't want to end up with a cat with frostbite. Luckily it's quite a bit warmer this week.
