A kind-hearted neighbor noticed a kitten in a tree.It turned out that she had been missing for two weeks.
Earlier this month, while Holly Young and her pup Nugget were out for a routine walk, she saw something out of the usual.
She couldhear the softest meow around an elementary school, in spite of all the pup barking across the street.The meowing stopped as we continued walking.
“The meowing began again after I picked up Nugget so I could in a quit way walk back,” told Holly .She was amazed to see a little kitten silhouette against the street light as she looked up into the nearby towering tree.
“She was around 25 feet up without any branches to bounce down onto.Therefore, I was unsuccessful in calling her.”
The following day, Holly attempted to obtain some assistance by contacting the school.She also contacted the fire department and the local Humane Society, but neither of them were able to assist.
“That evening, a fellow with an extension ladder came over, and I attempted to climb up to her, but she retreated out of reach.”After grabbing a can of tuna from a store nearby, Holly climbed back up to feed the cat.
She tried her best to coax the cat, but she was unable to free her from the tree.When she returned the following day, the cat was still there.
When he heard about the situation, the building owner across the street offered his extension ladder.Additionally, a tenant came to assist.
The cat didn’t back away when she saw Holly again because she had become accustomed to her by that point.Holly was able to safely pet the exhausted cat and bring her down after the cat let down her guard.
“I climbed down one rung at a time while holding her close to me.She was so passive and obedient when I put her in a carrier.Holly stated, “She just seemed so relaxed.”
To provide the cat with a secure home, Holly called The Meow Mission volunteer Sarah Hughes.She purred after receiving food and water, was lovely, and was content to be handled.
“Sarah thought the cute cat was likable someone’s animal because of how amiable she was.That thought kept coming to Holly’s mind as she drove home that day.
She began checking a lost-and-found page on a regular basis, but nothing about the cat surfaced.
She took the cat to the Family Pet Health Center to have the cat scanned for a microchip after she made the decision to submit a “found pet” report said Holly,
“The veterinarian tech took one look into the carrier when I walked in and said, ‘I know who that kitten belongs to.'”
“Two of the clinic’s veterinary technicians live in the same neighborhood, and they had both seen an online post about the cat.
Additionally, they each had received a full-color “Lost Pet” flyer that featured this stunning cat with distinctive facial markings.”
Winnifred, the cat, had been missing for 2 weeks, it turned out.She was an indoor cat who quickly escaped from Holly’s front door and traveled more than 3 miles to a nearby tree.
In the hope that somebody had seen her, Madge, the owner, had posted flyers on each door in her neighborhood.”Someone brought Winnifred in,” the worker told Madge when she called.
And when Madge yelled, “What?,” she took the phone out of her ear.”Holly disclosed. To see her beloved cat again, Madge raced to the hospital.They could see the excitement on her face as she crossed the parking lot.
As she wrapped Holly in a warm embrace, Madge was happy and excited at the same time.After that, she cradled Winnifred in her arms and grinned from ear to ear.
According to Holly, “She was telling all of us that just that morning, she had taken a walk and was trying to come to terms with the fact that she might never see Winnie again.
“I don’t think any of us had ever experienced anything like it. It was the most wonderful reunion.”
