    Hello I put the cats in the garage for the night and we heard a kitten crying and we were looking for a kitten under some things. Here we looked up and there is a tiny black and white kitten crying about 20 feet up in the tree setting on a good sized branch. So is there anything we can do to try and bring it down as we don't own the cat but being that little and in the rain is a scary thing to think about. So we tryed shaking so cat food but he/she won't come down at all. Thanks in advance

    I don't know quite how to get him down, but one thing to think of - have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree? :) Of course it's still upsetting to see a poor little animal in distress. I can only think of using a ladder, but you probably already had that thought.

    Yes but I don't know where to get a ladder that long and my dad sure isn't going to let us calm the fire department I would my self but I would have to ask first so I am going to see if it is down in the morning as I know my cat probably chased him up there as he chased other stray cats up a tree since he doesn't like other cats in his territory

    Ok thanks for all the help the kitten must have got down this morning and I don't see her any where but I am going to keep a look out being that little I put food out for her but she didn't eat any so I will see if she comes around I have been wanting a black and white cat since my favorite cat died she was the same color and this one even had long hair like her

    Alright well it went up even farther there isn't any tree left for him to climb up so I think we may have to cut the tree down and pull it over with the truck nice and slow to get him down
