PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In a tale as old as time, Hillsboro firefighters rescued a cat stuck in a tree Saturday.

Hillsboro Fire & Rescue’s Engine 5 Crew was called out to help the little creature after its leash became wrapped around a high branch.

A firefighter got the job done with a simple step ladder. He also took the time to take a photo with the cat and the girl it presumably belonged to afterward.
