Out on a limb: Cat stuck in tree for about 10 days
TEXAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Talk about a stubborn kitty. A cat has been sitting in a tree outside the home of a Kalamazoo County couple for the past week and a half. Pam Cameron said the feline “meows constantly” from its perch in the tree 50 to 60 feet above her Texas Township backyard.
Cameron told the Kalamazoo Gazette she and her husband have made several attempts to get the animal down from the tree.
They called the fire department, but the agency didn’t have a ladder long enough to reach the cat, which wears a dark collar and appears to be Siamese.
Cameron said her husband used a bow and arrow to shoot a string over a tree limb so they could raise a laundry basket with food and water.
The cat got within a foot of the basket, then backed away and remained in the tree.
