Put some cat food near the tree. It'll come down eventually. I've never seen a cat skeleton in a tree.

owls are the greatest threat our kitties face in the great outdoors. if you see an owl in your neighborhood, kill it now, before it eats another kitty. they are remorseless flying killing machines that will not stop, or cannot be bargained with. they absolutely will not stop until they have eaten your kitty, and your jack russels. shot them on sight, burn down the pine trees they live in, and make our world a safer place for all kitties.

thank you.

Cats do get stuck in trees, usually it is inexperienced cats that have not learned how to get down so they just keep climbing higher.

This little lady was stuck in a tree in 14º weather for several days before being rescued. The local Humane Society, gas, and electric companies all refused to help until a local TV station was due the next morning to do a report. If she had been coming down at night, her foot prints would have been left in the snow.

She was probably an I/O (indoor/outdoor) who was abandoned to the outdoors because some idiot thought "she's a cat she'll learn to survive." They often don't. Knowing her and how terrified she was of my cat-respectful cat-loving dog, I can see how she would have gotten stuck. She may not be the brightest of god's children, but she is gentle, calm, sweet, and indoor-only now. I found out about her via Fark.

It took me a long time to find a really good tree service company but if they refused to help in a situation like that they could just take my measly $2k a year tree maintenance out of their budget -- after I gave them the verbal beating of their life, of course.

I'm not going to call anyone. If the stupid cat can't get itself down it deserves to die up there.

What that article *really* needed was a Google map of the exact location of the scene. No idea why they didn't include that.
