Furry friend in need thankful for a good deed

orange-catOver the Easter weekend Rev. Audrey Whitney was searching for divine intervention with regard to a cat that had been chased up a very tall tree in her back yard. Fortunately she was able to find this Divine Intervention with the help of County native Mark Graham.
The cat had been up the tree in somewhat inclement weather for three days and nights too frightened  to climb down. Audrey had called several individuals to see if they could help but to no avail. Apparently the fire dept is not allowed to remove stranded cats from high places.
When I saw Audrey on Good Friday I could tell that she was very concerned about the welfare of the cat and was unable to sleep.
I knew immediately if anyone could rescue this cat it would be Mark. I know him as a gregarious young man with a smile and a friendly greeting whenever he sees you. Most importantly he has no fear of heights.
He very kindly came with me to Audrey’s to see if he could help.
What we saw was a beautiful orange cat perched at the far end of a very thin limb. He was unable to turn around to climb down the tree.
Mark then went home and came back shortly with his children carrying a very long ladder.
He was able to rescue the feline to the relief of Audrey and I suspect  to the great relief of the cat.
What a wonderful Easter gift Mark has given Rev. Audrey, who has for so many years provided comfort to countless individuals in their time of need. She, now in turn has received some comfort. But more than that Mark has taught his children and many of us a very valuable lesson.
Whenever possible do everything you can to help your fellow man and more importantly help animals that cannot help themselves.
Well done Mark. I suspect that Rev Audrey is sleeping better these nights because of your kind deed.
