Cowboy Rescues Cat

It should go without saying that to avoid cat-in-tree dramas cats should be kept indoors. Cats should also be kept indoors to preserve local wildlife. "But my cat claws my furniture," is not an excuse. This story has a happy ending, but because the caretakers' other cat got struck by a car, one can surmise both cats are the overly-common "inside/outside" kind. There is only one way to keep your beloved feline safer from disease and injury: Raise him/her indoors and keep them there. If you see a cat in a tree DO NOT attempt a rescue. And it isn't guaranteed the local fire department will respond to your call; your best bet is to call your local SPCA or Humane Society.
