Last week, the owner of a Siamese cat feared their furry friend had been stolen but when they started to call it, the missing cat cried back. The cat was crying from the from the top of a communications tower.

Neighbors watched anxiously as fireman tried to rescue the cat for several hours. The rescue was complicated since a cable on the tower carried high voltage electricity.

As the rescuers got close to the cat, the cat took to the air.

Fortunately four firemen on the ground caught the cat in a net. The cats suffered minor injuries and appeared not worse for wear after the adventure.
