I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
The human thought the cat was dead for sure. After seeing part of a leg and a fluffy tail, they thought the cat was “stuck hanging near a hot engine on a hot day.” But this human let the mall know anyway.
Mall security arrived on the scene, along with the owner of the car. And when they did, the feline demanded help. Acting quickly, the owner opened up the hood. But this was not enough to extract the feline. Parts of the car had to be taken apart.
After about an hour, the humans helped free the feline. It quickly tried to get away, but fortunately, the humans did not let that happen.
The rescuers took the feline to the white coated humans. White coated humans will check the feline’s health, and look for a microchip. Hopefully, the feline will go home soon. And if they cannot find the feline’s human, I hope the feline goes to a good home.
I am glad this feline was rescued, and I hope that wherever they end up, they are not allowed to roam outside and get trapped again!
Fire departments used to be the first place to call if a feline is stuck, but a lot of them no longer routinely respond to these calls. Now, they generally respond only if the situation requires it. And one trapped feline in Edison, New Jersey is very glad they did.
The workers called the fire department, and when they arrived with their special equipment, they started working to free the feline. Firefighters cut the pole down to a two foot section where the feline was trapped. Then they tried to free the feline by using soapy water. When that didn’t work, they tried an oily mixture. This failed, too.
The firefighters had to think about what to do next. They decided to take the pole with the feline inside it to the animal shelter. After they did this, white coated humans sedated the feline. And then, they were able to free the feline from the pole.
White coated humans examined the feline, and found the cat was healthy. They decided to observe the feline overnight. If everything is okay, they will put the feline up for adoption.
This feline will not have to wait long to be adopted, though. One of the firefighters already offered to adopt the cat.
According to authorities in Phoenix, at least 100 people called emergency services to request help for the feline. And they said they were not able to keep up with the number of calls.
When the television station learned Gypsy had been on the pole for several days, they started live streaming. And that is what made many humans call the fire department. But the fire department did not like getting so many calls.
The Phoenix fire department rescues many animals, said one of the humans with the department. But when so many humans call to report a stranded feline, it takes up time of dispatchers. And that means that humans who need help have to wait.
Besides, that human added, they do not handle situations involving utility poles. The local utility does. They train their employees to handle high voltage lines and other dangers. The fire department does not.
As it turns out, neither firefighters nor utility employees needed to help Gypsy. Instead, a human from the neighborhood did. They climbed the pole, and helped the feline get down. When the utility employee arrived on site, they explained why this is dangerous.
Sadly, the humans who called about Gypsy and the human who went to help seem to care more about the feline than the humans she lives with. These humans didn’t even know their feline was stuck on a pole for that long!
These humans are not worthy to care for a feline. The kind human who helped Gypsy should have given her a good home instead of returning her to these unworthy humans!
