2 winters ago we had a very bad ice storm here in NC. At the time we had an indoor siamese kitten, only a couple months old. She managed to get out the door while a family member was coming in. We noticed wihin a few minutes that she was missing. I went outside, there was 6 inches of snow on the ground already, and still falling. I heard a meow, I then saw her in the top of a thin tree. I tried to coax her down with food and everything I could think of, but she wasnt coming down. I went inside, told my mom who then called the fire department. We said we have a small kitten stuck in a tree, and asked for assitance. They came over. When they got there, they claimed they didnt know it was a cat problem, and that they dont rescue cats! they stood there looking at her for 10 mins, doing nothing! They left after that. It took almost 2 hours to get her down. I couldnt believe the fire department wouldnt help us!
