MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A cat in Haiku got stuck in a tree. It happens. But how it got down was nothing short of amazing.

After being stuck in the nearly 50-foot pine tree for more than three days, friends of the the cat’s owners stepped in.

They got in touch with Sarah Haynes, who runs a cat sanctuary called Kitty Charm Farm. She quickly came up with a very inventive solution.

The rescue team ran to the hardware store and purchased supplies to make a giant ramp.

After positioning it just right, and with some verbal coaching, the cat started to cautiously make it’s way down the contraption.

Eventually, it did slip, but landed in a makeshift net.

The cat was fine, but a little hungry, and the owner was beyond appreciative.

Haynes, who has led many cat rescues, says it’s always a good idea to train your cat how to climb down high objects back end first. She suggest purchasing a cat tower when they are still a kitten.
