My cat is up a tree. Can you come get it down?
Generally, no. While we do understand that being separated from a family companion is upsetting, most cats who climb up into a tree generally find their way down on their own and in a healthy condition. Many cats that climb into the safety of trees do so because they are frightened. These frightened animals generally will not allow unfamiliar firefighters to pluck them out of the tree. If you have a unique animal rescue situation, please contact Lewiston’s non-emergency dispatch line at 208-746-0171 and they will help you determine if the fire department or another resource can help reunite you with your family companion.
