A cat was rescued from a 36-foot telegraph pole after being stranded for at least two days.
Alexis Soberanis and Kimberly Medina, who live in Aurora, Denver, noticed that their black cat named Panther was missing from the house earlier this week.
A few days later, their neighbors spotted Panther perched on a nearby 36ft (11m) utility pole.
After two days of trying to entice the cat with food and pleadings, people started to worry when the snow started to fall on Friday morning.
Jessica Meadows, a resident of Aurora, said she and other neighbors had called animal control for help but were told there was “nothing they could do.”
She said: “Everybody said, ‘put some food in and it will fall down eventually.’
“It’s not going to happen.”
Aurora’s council member Curtis Gardner heard of the cat’s plight and sent a ladder truck to the scene on Friday afternoon.
Aurora Fire Rescure firefighters managed to save Panther after climbing the pole and placing the cat in a transport cage.
After being reunited with her pet, Ms Medina said he was no longer allowed to go out.
