Nice guy worried about his cat stuck in tree gets stuck himself

What I love about this video is the care, professionalism and attention to detail exercised by the Tulsa Fire Department. I bet they just turned up without a complaint and got the guy down really nicely and safely because I’m sure he was frightened, and then they went home, job done. I also feel for the guy who got stuck. He must’ve been in torment, worried about his cat. It must’ve been a big decision to go up that tree to try and get his cat down. But he did it and obviously quickly found that he could not help his cat or even himself. I understand the desire to help but then the impotence when you get there and find you can’t. It does bring it home as to how cat owners feel when their cat gets stuck in a tree. Not all fire departments come out to rescue cats. Strictly speaking it is not their job and I know I have read stories of fire departments turning down requests.

Around 3:45 pm, Captain Alan Hancock and his Engine 27 A Platoon crew responded to a rescue near S. 94th E. Avenue and E. 27th Street. Apparently a cat climbed high up into a tree. It’s owner was so concerned for the feline that he climbed up to attempt a rescue. Unfortunately, they both found themselves in a dangerous predicament high above the ground, unable to get down safely. When Captain Hancock and crew arrived and accessed the scene, they requested that Captain Jacob Inbody and the Ladder 27 crew respond to utilize their aerial device. Acting FEO Brett Allen positioned the aerial so Firefighter Jayme Brooks could ascend and perform a safe rescue. #catandownerrescue #becarefulfolks #tulsafirestation27 #paintrain #busieststationaround

There are, though, numerous stories of fire officers saving the lives of cats in fires and many do turn up to get them down from trees. Often it is tree surgeons who step up and do the job. They are very experienced in climbing trees and have all the equipment. They can do it safely and I’ve seen some fantastic rescues on video at great height, at around 50 feet, of tree surgeons rescuing cats. Below are some articles about cats stuck in trees which you might find interesting.
