STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. It must be embarrassing to call the fire department for a cat stuck up a tree. But in southern England, it was necessary because a person was also stuck.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service brought a ladder to save the woman and also the cat, named Harry, who's fine. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
