So it turns out firefighters really do rescue kittens from trees.
The Wichita Fire Department posted proof on Friday from a recent call where they saved a kitten from a tall tree at a mobile home park in south Wichita.
“We get jokes about it all the time, but on occasion, we really do save cats from trees,” a post on the department’s Facebook page stated.
The post included photos of a hoist lifting two firefighters to the branch where the kitten was stranded, as well as when the frightened feline is reunited with its owner.
