Teen’s Heroic Cat Rescue Goes Hilariously Wrong When He Finds Himself Stuck In Tree, Too

Teen’s Heroic Cat Rescue Goes Hilariously Wrong When He Finds Himself Stuck In Tree, Too

Sharing is caring!

Most passionate cat enthusiasts are ready to go to great lengths for their beloved feline friends – even at the cost of their own safety.

Recently, I stumbled upon a video that really made me laugh out loud. Believe it or not, a 17-year-old boy named Owen attempted to rescue a cat stuck in a tree 35 feet high at Holliday Park in Indianapolis. 

However, his heroic rescue mission took a hilarious turn!

For Owen, like many teenagers, climbing a tree was an easy task he successfully accomplished. 

However, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department, coming back down proved far more challenging since his position high up in the tree didn’t allow for a smooth descent. 

What began as a good intention to rescue a stuck cat quickly turned into an urgent situation where Owen himself needed rescuing!

Initially, the Indianapolis Fire Department planned to use an aerial ladder to bring Owen down, but they soon found this approach impractical. 

One firefighter explained the complication, stating:

“Crews were unable to simply utilize an aerial ladder due to the ground being too soft to hold the weight of the truck without it getting stuck.”

Because of that small inconvenience, the Rope Rescue Team was called in, and they successfully brought Owen down. 

The whole operation took about two hours, and fortunately, Owen escaped with just a few scratches as souvenirs from his tree-climbing adventure. 

Meanwhile, the cat watched the commotion from her lofty perch, seemingly unfazed.

With that classic feline smugness we all know and love, she probably thought, “What an idiot! Doesn’t he know I don’t need saving?”

Her owners eventually hired a professional to rescue their finicky feline from the tree – while Owen planned to do it for free!

I hope you find this story as entertaining as I did. For a live-action view of this hilarious rescue, check out the report made by Inside Edition if you wish to see live-action of this hilarious rescue.
