A cat stuck in a tree in Baltimore was rescued Monday by a good Samaritan, reportedly after weeks without food or water, an animal rescue organization said.
The feline had climbed a tree near Loch Raven Boulevard and Woodbourne Avenue near Kensington Gate Apartments in New Northwood. The cat had been in the tree for nearly four weeks, A Baltimore resident said in an email to Animal Rescue, Inc., the group said.
"I felt sick to my stomach when I read that e-mail," said Ashley Carlson, the organization's director of animal health and welfare. "I knew we had to do something."
Animal Rescue posted about the cat in distress on its Facebook page, which the group said drew the help of a contractor who scaled the 80-foot tree and brought the animal down.
The animal was taken to a veterinarian clinic in Towson, where he was given food and fluids before being released to go to Animal Rescue's headquarters in Pennsylvania. The group has dubbed the cat "Branch" and plans to take care of him until the owner is able to pick him up.
