Cats who get stuck in trees (are they really stuck?) don’t always appreciate (do they ever appreciate it?) being rescued. In this instance a nice guy, Joseph Lines, rescues a cat, Sarah, and gets bitten for his efforts. The sounds this guy makes as he is bitten are slightly amusing but they shouldn’t be. It’s a reminder that rescuing a cat from a tree is a good thing to do or at least that is the general opinion but thankless except the cat’s owner will be eternally grateful. The cat will be bemused. He was probably planning to come down that afternoon and the rescue was an unwelcome intrusion 😉
A fundraiser achieved £600 in donations to help Mr Lines financially as he is self-employed. He lost income when in hospital. It goes to show that cat bites which become infected require antibiotics quickly to prevent the infection getting out of hand.
Sarah was up the tree for three days and it was 40 feet up! It took place in Dorset, UK.
