That cat was lucky! My husband was a lineman for 37 years...most of the time a cat will come down on it's own, the other times they get electrocuted.

Getting a cat down is a huge deal...they don't just jump into your arms and start purring, they claw into the pole and hang on....then veloro to the wood as they are being picked up and after that turn into a ball of fury!

Hanging onto the cat to climb down 30 or 50 feet is a HUGE deal...or to take a ride in a bucket truck can turn into another scared cat situation!

My hat is off to the Power Company, who shut down all those homes (and took the complaints and the whines) for 'just a cat'. They understood stood that it wasn't JUST A CAT!

oh my gosh- poor kitty and kudos to the power company!

So glad he's ok but they should have helped him sooner

I am truly surprised that it stayed up there that long. I have always thought they could all get down if left alone. My cats will get up in a tree and cry like they are stranded but after a while they climb down. 9 days! Whew poor kitty. Wonderful power company.


Poor little thing. Give it to a cat to survive adverse conditions for longer than other creatures can.

Thank you to the brave people who got the kitty down
