Cat comes down

Whitby cat was seven storeys up a tree for four days!

“We called the fire department and they told us that only happens in the movies,” said Scott Gardiner, a resident of the area.

That was when Ajax crane company, Dwight Crane Limited, after reading the story online at, decided to step in and lend their equipment to the cause. Crew members arrived at the location at about 11 a.m. on Thursday.

“We thought we’d come help the little kitty out and no one else seemed to be able to do it,” said Corey Bell, a Dwight Crane employee who plucked the cat from the tree.

“I just grabbed it nice and carefully but not too hard and tried to be gentle with it.”

There were a few seconds of tension when the cat jumped from one narrow branch to another as the crane edged closer but crew members managed to safely remove the animal from the tree without any struggle and it has been returned to its owner.
