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.
I’d take him in a heartbeat - but I live in California.
