We've all heard of the fictional story of The Cat in the Hat. But cat in the tree? That's a true story. Sandy Powell has been worried about a cat that's been stuck up in her neighbor's tree for the past three days. No one in her Bradley Creek neighborhood knows who the cat belongs to. Powell has tried everything she can think of to get the cat down, but with no luck. The cat just continues to hold on for dear life about 70 feet above the ground. “I've posted on Craigslist, Facebook, I called all the tree companies, I called animal control, I called the fire department and they said we're in the city limits and they don't do cat rescues anymore. So this poor cat sits in a tree for the 3rd day in a row… probably hungry, scared, thirsty and I’m worried about it and I don't even know whose cat it is,” Sandy said. The cat has a collar and a tag, so it is not a stray. Powell said everybody in Wilmington is worried about azaleas this weekend, but she's more concerned about the cat in the tree. Update *** - News Channel 3 reporter John Rendleman went back to Sandy Powell's neighborhood on Sunday afternoon, day 4. We'll have an update with video from an attempted rescue. The story will air on Sunday's newscast... at 6pm and 11pm. The full updated story will be online on this website sometime Monday morning.
