Here he is..scared to death with no idea how to get down..yes cats can get down..but this was really really high and the tree was so skinny and he is so old...(and hurt we later find out)
It took over 2 hours to figure out what to do..first Chris put a board from the shed to the tree top..Romeo looked at that like "you want me to come down THAT?"
So Chris went up to access the situation and Romeo's condition..he came down and put on a heavy coat and gloves..there are not pictures because I was cowering in the kitchen unable to watch..I was sure Romeo not meaning to would shred Chris to pieces!
But it ended well ..he got up there and Romeo put his paws on Chris' shoulders..he grabbed him and down they came..no one got hurt.
But poor Romeo was hurt..he ripped every single one of his back claws out running up the tree..he was bloody and trembling..but managed to eat right away so he will be fine!
So today he is sleeping downstairs on a soft cat bed..with his food and litter box close.
Chris is my hero (and he says he doesn't like cats-ha!)
