Caught on video: San Francisco Firefighters Local 798 coax cat down from power pole

Here’s a quick (but heart-stopping) video of a cat in San Francisco being coaxed down from a power pole. The firefighters who arrived to assist were afraid the cat would be electrocuted if it moved in the wrong direction.

“Sometimes we rescue # from trees but today it was #cats from a power pole. With a little encouragement the #cat came down and was u harmed. #sanfrancisco #cats_of_instagram #catsofinstagram # #firelife #firefighter #truck #rescue #furfriends #furbaby #sffd #sf #fire”

A  ladder was placed against the power pole but the cat was unable to get its balance and eventually climbed down backward.
