LaSalle, Colo. (CBS4) – Rescue crews were able to save a kitten that had been stranded on a water tower since Sunday.
The cat got stuck 85 feet up an old water tower in LaSalle near Greeley, according to the Greeley Tribune.
People could hear the scared animal from the ground. They called in a technical rescue company called Technical Rescue Systems to get the cat down to safety. The company uses drone video in its business for such incidents.
“I’ve got to admit we weren’t sure what was going to happen. We didn’t know whether this cat was going to be really agitated or if it was going to launch, or what it was going to do,” Steve Fleming with Technical Rescue Systems said. “It turned out to be a fairly small kitten and actually was quite anxious to be rescued.”
The kitten was taken to a local veterinarian to get a checkup.
