A Palm Beach County tree service came to the rescue of a frightened feline that became stuck in a tree in Palm Beach Gardens Tuesday morning.

His owner says the four-month-old Siamese cat was stuck at the top of the tree for more than a day in the Garden Walk community off Military Trail.

He was too scared to come down so today Southeast Arborist tree service came to the rescue.

But it wasn't easy and cat food was needed to coax the animal down.

"It was a little hairy getting up there as thin as it was. Ideally, I would have brought a lift or a bucket truck but got it done, got the cat down safely and just glad to help out the fellow Palm Beach County community," said Mike Casey with Southeast Arborist.

Casey says the company has done a few other cat rescues in the past but this was one of the toughest.

The owners say they are very grateful and will be keeping the kitten inside for a while.
