The BBC reports that Maria Parry searched for her cat for three days before finding it. She climbed up the tree to comfort the cat and realized she was too terrified to climb down.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. It must be embarrassing to call the fire department for a cat stuck up a tree. But in southern England, it was necessary because a person was also stuck. The BBC reports Maria Parry searched for her cat for three days and found it stuck up a tree. She climbed up the tree to comfort it and realized she was too terrified to climb down. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service brought a ladder to save the woman and also the cat, named Harry, who's fine.
