|Okay, I am not a newbie, I have managed a cat rescue for years and years and currently own a boarding kennel, and I admit, I have never seen a cat skeleton in a tree, BUT... last night Dijon, about 9 months old, escaped from my house and vanished into thin air. He is a very nervous, scardy cat anyway, and has never been outside.
Well, about noon we discovered him, 30 feet up in a tree. I have tried all the obvious, including attaching a catch pole to a long pole and trying to snag him, trying to climb the tree (impossible), and trying to lure him down with one of my other cats.
NOTHING is working, he has now gone even higher to about 50 feet and is just frozen up there, meowing and meowing.
Any ideas??? Fire department is a no (insurance purposes) we don't have a hose that will reach to where he is to spray water over him (which DOES work!) and our longest pole is only 30 feet. Our longest ladder is only 12 feet so we are STUCK!
