You don’t hear cats getting stuck in trees too often anymore. Cats can climb into high places but they are great problem solvers and can figure out how to get back down if they need to. They analyze their surroundings and make a decision based off that.
However, if a kitty is scared, they rely on quick thinking and action.
This indoor kitty escaped its residence and went exploring. She didn’t go too far before being frightened by a local dog and quickly ran up a palm tree for safety. Though she was safe, her quick thinking got her stuck. She couldn’t find a safe way down the tree and had to resort to meowing for help. It wasn’t until 5 days later an animal rescue team got the call.
A drone shot captures just how tall the tree is that the kitty is stuck in. A whopping 30 ft tall!
After getting the kitty safely down the tree, the next step was finding if the kitty was microchipped so she can be returned home safely.
Success! A microchip was found!
Luckily, the owner of the kitty lived just around the block from where the kitty was stuck. She was returned to her owners safely and with great relief!
Her name is Patchmaloo and she’s happy to be home!
