Cats stuck in trees aren’t that rare. Hawk and owl rescues are less common. Today’s “Help, my _____ is stuck in a tree!” phone call was definitely one of the least common. Christine, of Frederick, called needing us to get her Amazon parrot, Rudy, who had been on the run for several days.
Rudy didn’t want to cooperate, flying tree to tree and hanging on for dear life. Mike ultimately ended up climbing three different trees, but after a while was able to catch Rudy, and Rudy and Christine were reuinted.
Meanwhile, on the ground, I got to take pictures of Christine’s other animals — a pair of goats named Samson and Delilah, and two dachshunds whose names I didn’t catch. Also, another parrot, Kiwi, who thankfully stayed on the ground.
