Up a tree

Portland , Oregon - A man climbed a tree on Friday to save his cat, but ended up needing to be saved himself. Ken Sinclair's white kitten, Breather, got stuck 30 feet up in a fir tree.

Sinclair tried calling to him, but the cat wouldn't budge, so he climbed up the tree. He managed to coax the cat down, but then couldn't find a way back down the tree.

Sinclair's girlfriend called 991 and firefighters arrived with a 100-foot ladder in tow. The cat and owner are now safe.
