One well-meaning NYPD officer got into a little bit of trouble while attempting to get a cat out of a tree.
After kids from Public School 213 in Oakland Park, Queens, convinced a cop to save the kitty in question, the cop got stuck himself and had to get saved by the FDNY.
“You gotta get the cat! You gotta get the cat,” they kids reportedly told the police officer. But, as soon as the officer climbed higher up the tree, the cat did as well. And when the cop attempted to follow the cat, well, he got stuck.
“The cop went up after the cat. The cat went a little further out. So, the cop went further out and he got stuck.” a source at the NYPD told the New York Post.
The FDNY then arrived with a ladder and a bucket, eventually rescuing both the cop and the cat, who were thankfully able to return to solid ground unharmed.
