While typing this, I'm watching Rob and Mandy in the midst of a rescue
operation.  They're building a ladder to a calico stuck in one of the trees
behind the house.  The tree in question, is a really tall spindly oak tree
and the cat is as far out on a limb as she can be and not be flung into the
neighbor's yard with the next wind gust.  And the wind is gusting.  Said
kitty has a red collar on, and apparently is lost, not dumped, but I have
this feeling....

Deep within the Vaults, the silver kitty brushes dust from a post

00:30:04 GMT and contemplates it at length before replying:

Are you SURE?!

I don't think the mothership (and crew) will be happy until you have
your full quota of kitties and that probably means double figures !!!!

Too soon to say congrats, the cat is still stuck in the tree.  I'm afraid to
go out of the house, the poor thing is crying her fur off and Mandy says
that she gives up.  I'm thinking about buying a ladder.  We're going to need
one anyway.

The cat is out of the tree.  It cost us $105, and we dug out some of the
***agers who live in the neighborhood, but we got her out.  She was over 40
feet up this skinny oak tree.  We bought a ladder (24 ft but all we could
afford), put it against the pine tree next to it and Rob went up.  He
actually went up further than he should have gone.  We tried to coax it
down.   We tried everything we could think of.  Finally Rob tied a rope to
the tree and the kids pulled the thing over so that the branch was next to
the pine tree where Rob was waiting.  The d*mned cat clung on like a monkey.
I rousted out the Dr who lives next door and while waiting for him to get
off of his cell phone spotted three neighborhood boys and drug them into
helping as well.  One of the boys actually climbed up the pine and over to
the oak where Stupid was shinnied out as far as she could get on a branch.
Any further and she'd have come down on her own.  He couldn't get her to
come to him (she was too angry and scared) so he shook the tree.  He almost
shook himself out of the tree, but finally Idiot dropped down to where Rob
and Mike had a blanket out to catch her.  She landed on Rob, and took off
for the hills.  I still don't know what she looks like.

We weren't too happy about the method we had to use to get her down, but
she's finally down now and we can see if she comes around again and try to
coax her into accepting us enough to feed her, catch her and see if we can
find her family.  She does have a red collar on.

Ohhhhhhh, I bet that was awful to listen too. Traumatic, it may have been to
come out, but heck, it would have been more traumatic all that time up in
the tree. My friends cat was in a tree three days while we searched for her.
A neighbor finally though they heard a cat and told my friend's husband.
Ginger had pee'd and poo'd all over herself. It was very sad. Another tree
story was my beloved sooty stuck in a very tall lumbardi tree. My dad
actually climbed the thing and there was no way to get down with him so my
brother stood below with his denim jacket as a net. Now that I am older I
just BLANCHE at the chance they took (and I watched the whole thing too!)
but when you are 10, it looks just like in the movies and my brother caught
him neatly and safely and my beloved Sooty came straight back over to me for
love. My poor dad. He was no spring chicken when he did this. The faith of
wee children......

D'you think the kitty just headed home? I hope so. I'm also glad you got her
out. Kiss Rob for being such a champ!

Dang. You had to buy a ladder?? Ladders aren't cheap....but, to look on the
bright side, next time a cat needs rescuing, you'll be equipped.
