These firefighters will not rescue cats from trees because they don’t deal with animal welfare — 3 Comments

  1. It is truly unfortunate, NTM unkind, that they would make this blanket decision. Fortunately, I haven’t had to deal with much of this. But when I have had to, I get as high up in the tree as I can with a quilt or quilts. Ensuring that I am safe myself, I make the quilt(s) into as large a ‘platform’ as I can…like a shelf…. and hold it against the tree under where the cat is. I then try to talk it down. It’s always worked for me. They see a safer landing close to where they are, even if they are still far away, and attempt to reach it.
