Cookie's Second Rescue

Cookie got stuck in a tree again, but I give her credit for waiting a long time to do it.  I first rescued Cookie a year and a half ago, and I remember her as a friendly and cooperative little tortie.

After we visited in the tree for several minutes, he stepped onto my lap, and we came down to the ground that way. Lucky is an inside cat, but he has been finding some opportunities to sneak out lately, and I expect him to
