we have three new barn cats. Young, weve just started letting them out full time. But full size.

Gizmo is freaking stuck in a tree meowing.

Moron.

He is a cool cat, but he's going to have to do his job, which includes me not having to do stupid **** like rescuing him.

He is about 30' up, too damned far to think about ladders.

There is no one to call.

Ive talked to him, pointed with the flashlight, and put food out.

Questions; odds he'll figure it out? Any other ideas?

Can you knock him out of the tree? Shoot with a paint ball gun?

He'll either figure out how to get back down or an owl will get a tasty snack. I'll bet he figures it out.

What kind of tree is it and how close are you to agrams place?

Can a cat survive a thirty foot fall into tall grass and fairly soft soggy ground?

Political correctness is the belief perpetuated by the liberal media that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Lean the tallest extension ladder you have up against the tree and wrap it with blankets or quilts. Give him something he can grip to climb down.

Or as the firefighter told my grandmother in Beaumont about 50 years ago...he will come down eventually on his own. When she asked how he knew that, he told he had never seen a cat skeleton in a tree before. She was nowhere near as amused as my dad was when she called and told him about it.

I've got a 20+ extension of ladders if you are anywhere near SE Houston

Two possibilities:

1. You suffer a long night of howling till that cat figures how to get out of a tree

Or

2. You shoot that dumb-ass. I'd go with 4's.

Overnight storms might blow him out of the tree.

This is pretty much every firefighter I know answer to this question: Have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree....they promptly turn around and leave.

You could borrow one of azulAg's foxes and toss it up in the tree...

Best trick I ever heard to get them down is open a can of tuna and put it at the base of the tree. The smell drives them nuts and brings them down toot sweet.

I can promise you there was no alcohol involved in the scientific findings I am about to present for the first time. Years ago me and my my room mates devised a clever test to determine if something was a cat or not. Simply pitch into the air....lands on its feet=cat. Otherwise not cat. Your welcome

My barn cats get ran up the trees every day. My cur dog makes sure they know that is his acerage and they arent allowed. They figure it out.

well, the poor guy is still up there.

i put a can of tuna out, tried to talk him down.

i like the little guy, but i have no way to get him down, he's 30' up.

even the 'hold my beer' ladder in a tractor bucket with a pool net wont reach, not that I am really going to try that.

My dumb cat got stuck about 30' up a couple years ago. I was grilling several hours later and watched her ungracefully back down the tree.

It sucks that he's gone 24 hours but I'd still put money on him finding his own way to the ground.
Maybe pad the ground w leaves or hay

Can you fly a drone up there? No sure what the drone would do, but at least you could get some footage of the cat 30' up in a tree.

This is a perfect example of as to why dogs are man's best friend.

The cat is probably conspiring against you up there.

we have three outside cats and a new set of full time neighbors, we live on a lake and none of the houses close to us were full time live ins until the house right next to us sold recently. First time in around 15 years that we have "neighbors" that actually live next to us. They are really good folks and really get along well with us.

ag mom and I were out ot town for a business trip the first of this week and her phone "pings" at 5:30 AM - One of our cats was up on the top of a little gazibo they have and the neighbor was worried he could not get down. I heard my wife say: "He got up, he can get down". She checked with them around mid morning and sure enough the cat was safe and sound running around the neighborhood.

We had a cat jump out of a tree about 20 feet up. Landed on concrete driveway, ended up breaking his back but living.

Made a "full" recovery.
