Oh Poor Fluffy. He's got himself into a real pickle this time. He's in a redwood tree that's about 70' tall and he's about 20' from the top. From what I've heard he was chased up there by a child sometime on Monday where he stayed overnight at around 25' to 30' up but unfortunately went higher yesterday afternoon.
I met a nice Sheriff Deputy in the parking lot last night and asked if he had a flashlight strong and bright enough to try to see how high up he was in the tree. After about 25 minutes with the use of both flashflight and spotlight on the tree he finally located Fluffy with the light catching his eyes. Unfortunately as I mentioned, about 20' from the top.
He went over to ask the Fire Dept to see if they could do anything but they do not have a ladder that can reach 50+ feet. Of course one of the men at the Fire Station said have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree. So I decided I'd check that out on the internet. Sure enough, that is a myth...well maybe true in this regard, sure there won't be a skeleton in the tree because the cat will have died and fallen out. I have learned on various websites, cats claws are designed to climb up and if the tree is thin enough they can shimmy their way back down with some trial and error. This redwood is way too big around for him to even attempt that. The other worry is while he can go without food for some time, I do not know how long cats can go without water.
So our only hope is if the Operating Engineers would consider doing us a favor again, that is if their crane and cage can reach.
Here's his last story, I wonder if a child chased him up this last time too:
