A Swedish man said the fire department had to be called for a rescue after he followed his cat up a tree and was unable to get down.
The Kristineberg, Sweden, man said he climbed the tree Wednesday after his cat had been stuck for several days and panicked when he found himself about 50 feet above the ground, The Local reported Thursday. The man said he called emergency services after he found himself unable to climb down due to fear of the height.
It was kind of a funny assignment and certainly out of the ordinary. Once he was way up in the tree, the man didn't dare to come down, emergency worker Torbjorn Nilsson told The Local.
Nilsson said the situation had a happy ending for both man and cat.

First we took down the cat, then the guy, said Nilsson.
Everything ended well.
