In Erie, Pa., firefighters rescued a cat and the woman who tired to get it out of a tree. Stuck in the top branches was Tara Dennis, according to the Erie Times-News.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Cats know how easy it is to get up a tree and firefighters know how hard it can be to get down. Yesterday in Pennsylvania, firefighters rescued a cat and its rescuer. Stuck in the top branches was Tara Dennis. The Erie Times-News reports that after hearing the cat cry for a couple of days, she'd gotten up on a roof, crawled out on a branch, tucked the cat into her shirt and then a neighbor had to call 911 to rescue her. It's MORNING EDITION.
