RSPCA animal rescue officer Emmeline Myall responded to the location and contacted local firefighters for assistance, but the department did not have adequate equipment to reach the cat's perch.
Myall enlisted the help of Airedale Tree Surgeons, which sent three tree-trimmers to assist with the rescue.
"The safest way to rescue the cat was by abseiling him back down. Thankfully tree surgeon Toby was brave enough to scale such a height to safely bring the cat down," Myall said in the RSPCA news release. "Once he was down, the cat ran and hid in a rabbit burrow -- it'd been quite an ordeal for him! But happily he was unharmed and his owners were so relieved for him to go home."
