Calgary firefighters were able to help a cat that became stuck at the top of a utility pole in the community of Highland Park on Friday.
Firefighters and police both responded to a call about the trapped tabby in the 200 block of 40 Avenue Northeast just before 7 a.m.
The cat had become wedged between some of the mechanics on the pole and couldn’t get down.
Firefighters were able to move the item the pussycat had become pinned under and leaned a ladder against the pole so they could climb up and save it.
No sooner did crews start extending the ladder up the pole toward the fearful feline when it rushed down the pole on its own, hightailing it down the alley.
