Six months old she ran away
She was gone so worried was I
Calling her and looking low and high
Then one night I heard a sorrowful cry
There she was in a tree sixty feet high
The temperature was low I think twenty four
I was scared this Kitten would fall to the floor
Panic set in, what was I to do, I didn’t know
I couldn’t climb that tree, being old and so -
I called the Fire Department of our local town
Fifteen young men came to help my Kitty down
Quickly up the tree the young man went
Talking to her quietly she looked at him content
He grabbed her tucking her close to his chest
Bringing her down safely, knowing she was a mess
The first Kitty rescued by our town’s Firemen
Lucky Kitty a feline who committed this sin
She looked at her Hero and gave a purring song
As if to say, I was scared…so what took you so long?
Mai Ling was rescued by the North Patchogue Fire Department in 2007.
Being this was their first 'Kitty' rescue - the young fireman smiled!!!
