This cat realised it had bitten off more than it could chew when it ended up high in a tree in Bury St Edmunds.
The fire service sent a crew and a turntable ladder to Home Farm Lane yesterday to rescue the cat, but in the end it came down by itself.
Suzy Abbott, who photographed the drama, said: “Firefighters coaxed it down to the lower branches where the owner was able to reach it from a step ladder.”
A spokeswoman for the fire service said they were initially called about the cat at about 5pm on Saturday, but it was decided to see whether it would come down by itself.
The next day, the RSPCA called at about 9am to say the cat was still in the tree and the turntable ladder and crew were sent out.
