This is the story of one cat who survived the Tennessee storms in a tree.
The cat got stuck in a tree behind the home of Tom Hendrickson. When Hendrickson’s daughter and her friends spotted the cat, they knew they had to help the cat because of the storms and the high winds.
Hendrickson said, “He was getting weak in his meow and we had three stressed out little girls who were really concerned about him.”
One of the daughter’s friends had a father who used to climb and trim trees for a living, so they called him. He climbed up the tree and rescued the cat and brought him to safety.
The cat was brought to an animal hospital and is recovering from his experience in the tree. The cat is very friendly and is house-trained but didn’t have a collar on.
So far, the cat hasn’t gone back outside and has only left the house to go to the animal hospital.
For now, the Hendricksons have a new family pet that is quite the survivor. They have named him Topper since he was a cat that “topped” a tree.
