Animal rescuers in Britain said a cat that spent three days stranded in a tree jumped to a neighboring tree and fled into a nearby garden.

The RSPCA said a resident of Wilslow, Cheshire, England, contacted the organization last week to report an orange cat that had been stuck on a high branch of a 60-foot tree for about three days.

“Neighbors believed the cat had been stuck up the tree for at least three days and I was concerned that he’d not had any food or water in that time and was stuck very high up,” Lauren Bradshaw, an RSPCA animal collection officer.

“The tree was very tall and was in a ravine which made access extremely difficult. Thankfully, a local tree surgeon was able to assist and was quick to attend.”

The tree surgeon had almost reached the cat when it jumped to the other tree, climbed down and ran into a nearby garden, according to a report by UPI.

Bradshaw said she later discovered a note put by a neighborhood family on her RSPCA vehicle saying their cat was missing and it matched the description of the feline from the tree.

Bradshaw said the cat was micro chipped and she was able to positively identify him as the family’s cat. She said that the cat and the family were happily reunited.
