In the midst of one of the worst winters Michigan has seen in years, Pinecone was suffering through the cold nights and snowy days, alone at the top of an evergreen tree in Detroit for 10 days. Now she has found her forever home!
Watch Pinecone’s adoption story, and read about her rescue and see her rescue video below.
Pinecone was adopted by JoAnn Pedlar, who had seen her story on TV.
Cat stuck in tall tree for ten cold days
A concerned caller reported a cat that had been in a tree for 10 days and would not come down.
Food and water had been left at the base of the tree. Yet the cat stayed put.
In the midst of one of the worst winters Michigan has seen in years, this cat was suffering through the cold nights and snowy days, alone at the top of an evergreen tree in Detroit.
Even from 40 feet down, we could visually see the deteriorating condition of this poor cat.
Breaking out our extension ladder as we arrived on scene, we quickly realized that it wasn’t going to reach her.
She was still 10 feet away from the top of the ladder. We had to start looking at other options.
“We have any climbing equipment?” somebody asked.
An hour later, we had the climbing equipment, and most importantly, someone that knew how to use climbing equipment.
Ten minutes after that, we had the cat in our hands.
Pinecone, as we named her, was rushed back to the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care where she received medical attention for dehydration and exposure as well as the first food and water she had seen in more than a week.

Next time when no fireman or animal control will help, tree trimmers can !
So glad Pinecone found a wonderful forever home. Tree trimmers can be a fantastic help.
