Cats in Trees

I recall reading a story about a fireman who was tired of getting calls about cats in trees.  His response to calls was to ask, "Have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree?"

I feel like saying that sometimes.  This weekend there was a cat in a tree.   The neighbors were up in arms.  There were angry phone calls as to why we weren't responding.  First off, we do not have a cherry picker to pluck an unfortunate cat out of a tree.  Secondly, if a crowd (including dogs) stands at the bottom of the tree, yelling for the kitty to come down, it won't come down.

We usually recommend that someone places a can of stinky cat food at the bottom of the tree and let the cat come down on its own.
