Tonight as I was walking my dog I noticed a cat meowing for help from the roof of my house. You were a kind stranger who stopped to help me get her down. We tried everything we could think of for a good 30-45 minutes, including calling the police, the neighbors, and you boosting me up so I could try and grab her, but we couldn't get her down. Finally we had tried everything we could, were forced to give up, and you went on your way. Just wanted to let you know, shortly after you left some fellows who are taller than I climbed up and managed to get her! I called the owners and they came to pick her up. I hope you see this so you know that the kitty is safe and sound, and even if we didn't manage to get her down ourselves, I appreciate you stopping to help! —Crazy Cat Lady
