It is well known that climbing cats are sometimes overwhelmed by their own urge to climb and then no longer find their way to the ground. In Delmenhorst, Lower Saxony, however, a cat owner now seems to have had a similar problem. As reported by the NDR, citing a spokesman for the local emergency services, the man climbed after his pet, which was stuck on a tree, about twelve meters high. And then he didn't know what to do himself.

Delicate situation

As a result, the fire brigade had to rescue both the animal and its owner. The brother of the 27-year-old man alerted the emergency services on Sunday evening around 20 p.m. by emergency call and reported on the delicate situation. According to the NDR report, the helpers arrived with a turntable ladder and brought the man and the cat from the tree back to the ground.

The 27-year-old was lucky: Since it was an emergency, the pet owner did not have to pay for the use, it said.
