You took the words right off of my keyboard!!
I hate it when others hijack threads for their own personal soapbox for their own personal cause.
With that said, kitty will come down when he’s ready. My cat went up a tree for 2 days when there were strangers in our yard doing construction on the house —saw her up there, her tail was switching back and forth and she looked like she was mocking us!! I think she wanted the attention. When she got good and hungry, she found her way down
The kitten WAS removed from the tree by the fire department, taken to the NYC Animal Care & Control center and is now on the EUTHANASIA LIST for lack of space in the facility. I posted this story to try and rustle up anyone who could give the kitten a home and get him out of the ACC before they kill him, which will only be probably a few hours away. Look at his picture in the original source. He is ADORABLE and bright eyed.
