Sale firefighters come to the rescue of Twiggy the cat


RED Watch from Sale Community Fire Station came to the rescue of Twiggy the cat earlier this week after reports that the young feline was stuck 14 meters up a tree for two days.

The RSPCA requested the attendance of Sale firefighters in Maple Road West, Sale after concerns from the local community.

Crews initially pitched a 9m ladder and removed branches blocking the pathway to Twiggy, before extending the ladder to 13.5m.

The ladder was tethered at the head for safety before firefighter Nobbs attempted to lure Twiggy over. 

The cat whisperer, Nobbs managed to coax over without the use of any other equipment. Nobbs then carriedthe feline down to safety by hand.

The RSPCA have contacted the crew at Sale to say that Twiggy is not chipped and will be taken to a local animal shelter.
