Justin Koonce, a firefighter for the Roswell Fire Department, in Roswell, N.M., descends a ladder after rescuing a kitten from a tree in the backyard of Jeanette Schaffer on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2007, with the assistance of three of his colleagues below. Schaffer, who was unsure who the cat belonged to, said a dog had chased it up the tree about a day or so ago and that the mother cat alerted her to the kittens’ presence Tuesday evening by circling the tree and meowing throughout the night. Schaffer called the Roswell Fire Department and asked if they still rescued cats stranded in trees and the fire department confirmed that, yes, they do. [Photo by Mark Wilson/AP]
