Cat stranded up tree for 7 days - OMG!


By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

A frightened cat spent seven days stuck 100ft up a giant redwood tree - because the fire brigade's ladder was too short to reach her, it emerged yesterday. Mischevious tabby Tiggs, one, shot up the huge tree after being scared by a dog in a neighbouring garden at her home in Buckden, near St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Worried owners Natasha Moore, 22, and daughter Chloe, four, frantically hunted for the missing moggy but only heard Tiggs' cries from the lofty branch five days later. They called in the firebrigade and the RSPCA, but the 45ft  ladder on the engine was still over 50ft short of reaching her in the tree.

Poor baby way up that tree, it was way up there too. But there were sure some mean comments in that article, stoopid humans! I am sure glad the tree human helped out.
