Handsome is Jill's five-month-old Siamese kitty, and she gave him that name because he was the prettiest cat she had ever seen. Handsome managed to slip away from Jill's watchful eye, and he began to climb a tall Pine tree in the corner of the back yard. The first limb he encountered was 45 feet high, and he perched there and slowly came to the realization that he was stuck.
Jill wasted no time in working to find a way to get Handsome down, but, when all her efforts failed, she found me and called. I could hear the urgency and distress in her voice and told her I would be there as soon as I finished another rescue near there. We were both concerned about the severe weather that was forecast for the afternoon, so it was important that I complete both rescues that morning.
