Cat Is Stranded In Tree, Refuses Rescue

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with a story of a cat up a tree. Charlie (ph), an orange cat in England, spent three days there. An animal collection officer called a tree trimmer. The trimmer climbed the tree to save the cat. And rather than let himself be rescued, the cat made a death-defying leap to another tree and climbed down on his own. Cat owners know the moral here. A cat up a tree may need your help, but he doesn't want your help. You think he's stuck, but he'd die before he admits that. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
