Rumble A cat stuck in a tree in Auckland didn’t need a rescue team, but instead took a leap of faith on Thursday, December 22.

According to the Lonely Miaow Association Inc., a cat rescue operation, the cat got stuck in a tree in the Panmure suburb of Auckland. After “crying his little heart out” rescue crews were able to pinpoint the tree.

The association described the incident in detail on Facebook:

“With a ladder on each side, and two firefighters up the tree, there was a fair bit of rustling, and shaking of branches, and finally little naughty made a leap of faith and launched from the top. Its true that cats always land on their feet, he was a bit like a flying fox!

“He hit the ground running! He was launched after by several firefighters who he managed to elude, and then our cat rescuer Mel with a fishing net set off in hot pursuit. Chased the kitten under two fire trucks, and across the road, managed to corner him in the corner of a house, and nabbed him with the net!”
