Instructions to Get a Cat Out of a Tree

Traditionally considered as a lazy-day activity for firefighters, rescuing a house cat somehow winds up trapped in a tall tree presents a serious task for the uninitiated, By nature, cats are tentative, instinctual creatures that cleverly treat anything unfamiliar as a threat. Typically a cat that is stuck high up in a tree is in a terrified state, and perhaps will track down its own specific manner down after some time has passed and it no longer senses any danger from the immediate environs. As such, the best ‘first step’ is to wait to see if the cat climbs down on its own.

On the off chance that the tree itself is not that high, and the cat simply refuses to descend the ladder, it is suggested for an eventual cat rescuer to put on laborer’s gloves and heavy dress before the individual attempts to scale a ladder. The cat will most reasonable resist the rescue attempt, and lash out at anybody that climbs up after it. Have a go at grabbing the cat by the nape of the neck, and cutting it down, after reassuring and calming the cat (to avoid any high-altitude accidents on the way back down!)

Just know that this option may accompany an occurrence report and possibly a charge (especially for repeated instances).
