Maine firefighters were dispatched to rescue a cat’s owner from a tree after the feline’s predicament prompted the owner to attempt a rescue.
Gardiner Fire Chief Al Nelson said the call came in at around 11:30 Wednesday morning, when a woman had become stuck in a tree after trying to rescue her cat.
By the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the woman had made it down safely on her own. Making sure that she was okay, they checked her over and left- leaving the cantankerous cat in the tree.
“That’s not a dispatch you hear every day,” said Nelson, in an interview with the Press Herald.
According to the chief, fire crews were on scene in under five minutes.
