Cat rescued after getting stuck up huge oak tree!
The RSPCA was called after the black-and-white cat – named Moritz – was spotted stuck seven metres up the oak tree, near Blaenrhondda.
RSPCA Cymru arrived and enlisted the support of South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, who used their ladders to reach Moritz and bring him back down to safety.
RSPCA Inspector Simon Evans says: “RSPCA Cymru was really pleased to work with a crew from South Wales Fire and Rescue Service to help Moritz. This rescue was another example of the great things we can do for animals, and their welfare, by working in partnership.
“And it’s always nice to have a happy ending! It was great to be able to help reunite Moritz with his owner.”
Moritz’s owner, Maria, says: “Moritz is an adventurous cat, and this is the second time he has got himself stuck up a tree – this time an oak tree!
“I rescued Moritz three years ago. I’m so happy he’s safely back home and I’m very grateful to the RSPCA and the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service for helping him.”
