LAKESIDE, Calif. (KGTV) -- If you don’t believe cats actually get stuck in trees, just ask the Lakeside Fire Department.

The cat somehow managed to climb a tall palm tree Sunday morning in Lakeside but wasn’t able to get back down.

Fire crews used an engine and a 65-foot tall ladder to rescue the stranded pet. “This rare incident is an example of our firefighters out in the community doing what needs to be done,” the department said in a post on social media.
