Colorado rescuers save cat stuck on water tower

LASALLE, Colo. (AP) — A cat stuck for days on a converted water tower didn’t have to cash in one of its nine lives.

The Greeley Tribune reports that rescuers on Wednesday plucked the black cat from the water tower, which has been converted to hold cellular infrastructure in the town of LaSalle, north of Denver.

The cat had been stranded since Sunday.

Two climbers scaled the tower and herded the cat into a pet carrier before lowering it to the ground. The cat was taken to a veterinarian.
