SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — Christian Pierce says he’s an animal person, so he didn’t hesitate when he heard about helping a cat on Dec. 29.
He works for L&W Services and was tagged in a Facebook post about a cat stuck in a tree for five days in Socastee.
“It was up there screaming and I felt really bad,” said Pierce, when he arrived to the area where the cat was stuck. He said you could hear the cat from a block away.
It was only about 30 minutes from Pierce being tagged in the post to being 65 feet in the air, climbing a tree to rescue the cat.
