LASALLE, Colo. (AP) - A cat stuck for days on a converted water tower didn’t have to cash in one of its nine lives.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2ffQ6HS ) that rescuers on Wednesday plucked the black cat from the water tower, which has been converted to hold cellular infrastructure in the town of LaSalle, north of Denver.

The cat had been stranded since Sunday.

Technical Rescue Systems, a Fort-Collins based training firm, arrived to save the animal. Company founder Steve Flemming says he has no idea how the small feline got up the tower in the first place.

Two climbers scaled the tower and herded the cat into a pet carrier before lowering it to the ground.

A small crowd that gathered to watch the spectacle unfold erupted in applause.
