    Skagway, Alaska (KINY) - A Skagway resident became concerned when her pet cat didn't return home for three days.

    Skagway Fire Chief Joseph Rau said they looked around and found the cat named "Kitty" stuck in a tree about 25 feet from the ground.

    Fire Department personnel responded and were able to remove Kitty safely from the tree by using a 24-foot long extension ladder.

    Chief Rau said the fire crew was able to retrieve Kitty safely without incident and returned her back into her family's anxious arms.
