California firefighters rescue a cat from a tree, catching the cat in dramatic fashion

We’ve all heard stories of firefighters rescuing cats from trees, climbing up a long ladder to retrieve the grateful kitty, but sometimes more drastic measures are required. Sometimes accessing the cat isn’t as easy as you’d hope and a new tactic is necessary to make a rescue happen.

As you’re about to see, firefighters had to get creative in order to save this cat that was trapped high in a tree. With a falling feline likely to happen, these firefighters decided that their best bet was to catch the cat and make sure they got it right. Fortunately, everything went exactly as planned. Unfortunately, the cat didn’t stick around to thank its rescuers for saving one of its nine lives but we’re sure the cat is grateful.
