So, it’s Christmas Day, and Maggie, one of our new cats, decided to climb about 50 feet up a neighbor’s hickory tree. Then, of course, she can’t get down. The temperature was supposed to drop to the low 20s tonight, so we can’t just leave her up there, or so I’m told. We called Adam from Out on a Limb Tree Service and he came out on Christmas Day, climbed the tree and grabbed the cat. It’s a Christmas miracle! Thanks Adam! Here’s video Amanda made of Maggie being saved. Click a picture to embiggen and then click on the right side of the picture to run through them.
UPDATE: Maggie has a very large 2-3″ gash on her belly. Looks like she may have been attacked by a hawk or some of our local Northern Virginia fauna. Brenda and Amanda took her to the 24 emergency vet. I’m taking bets on how many thousands of dollars emergency vet services on Christmas will cost. Does anyone know how to set up a Go Fund Me Page?
