Poor Athena; I'm glad she was okay!
We had a similar situation occur about an hour and a half North of us in Peterborough recently. That story also had a happy ending, but only because a private citizen with a cherry picker risked his own safety to rescue the cat. The utility company flat out refused to shut off power so that the fire department could go up and get the cat, and they refused to allow any of their linemen to rescue the cat citing safety concerns. It was pretty ridiculous that the utility company wouldn't shut power down to a single residential street for all of 10 minutes in the middle of a weekday to save the life of someone's pet--anyone on the street who was home at the time was outside gawking anyway. Would the utility companies really rather a private citizen get electrocuted trying to save a cat than lose 10 minutes worth of revenue from a handful of homes?! Because, if that's the case, I'm thoroughly disgusted!
