A red-faced woman had to be rescued by firefighters after climbing up a tree to rescue her CAT.
The pet owner got stuck after scaling the tree to save the kitten named Bella which was stranded on a high branch.
Both were safely brought back down to the ground unharmed after fire crews rushed to their rescue.
But following the incident in Peterborough, Cambs., on Tuesday, they warned that people should not “risk their own lives” to save a pet.
A spokeswoman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “We know that people love animals and would risk their own lives to save a family pet or other animal in distress.
“Our advice would always be to avoid putting yourself in danger and to contact the RSPCA in the first instance.”
