With all the best intentions, sometimes helping out a friend can have some no-so-intended results, and, in this case, it included being up a tree with a kitten.
In an article posted by The Telegraph, Bella’s owner, Saskia Cornwell, said of the situation, “It was very embarrassing. The fire engine arrived with its blue light on and five firemen got out. They tied a rope around the branch and three of them pulled the rope to help (friend) Emily free her leg, then another fireman climbed up the ladder and helped her down. In the meantime Bella managed to climb down the tree to the firemen, so they carried her down too. It was a ridiculous situation, but Bella loved all the attention. I’ve kept her inside ever since her adventure.”
This is what the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service tweeted out of the event:
All we can say is, “oops.” Maybe some things need to be left to the professionals.
