The first report about the cat stuck in the tree on Coleridge Street arrived in the Bernalwood newsroom on Monday:
Two days later, the cat was *still* up in the tree, with Neighbor Bahman reporting:
@Bernalwood here’s a pic of the cat stuck in the juniper tree at 147 Coleridge. Anyone have a 30ft ladder?
The dramatic coda came later this morning. Again, Neighbor Bahman reported from the scene:
Fire Department & Animal Control showed up. Once they approached on ladder, cat climbed down & bolted across the street.
Though the rescue attempt ultimately proved unnecessary, it’s still gives you the warm-and-fuzzies to know that the whole “firemen rescuing cats from trees” tradition is alive and well… even in the Big City, and even in 2012.
