A cat rescued after 12 days on the tree
Bess’ owner spotted her beloved cat last Friday perched high in the tree. For almost two weeks Bess was without food and water and facing strong winds and sweeping rain.
The drama wasn’t over when Bess’ owner saw her high in the tree. When the fire crews turned up, their ladders couldn’t reach her cat and specialist rope teams were unavailable. The RSPCA were also unable to track down any help over the weekend.
Bess’ owner started to call help on her local radio station. Finally, the cat was rescued by a team of tree surgeons who scaled the black poplar tree and put her back on the ground.
