Los Angeles – A cat named Mikey has been stuck in an unclimbable tree near the intersection of Manzanar Avenue and Rosemead Boulevard in Pico Rivera, California, for the past week, and his guardian is frantic. A 135-foot boom truck and licensed driver are urgently needed for Mikey’s rescue.
“The terror and exhaustion that this cat must be feeling as he clings to a tree day after day is hard to imagine,” says PETA Senior Director of Cruelty Casework Stephanie Bell. “Time is running out, and PETA is sounding the alarm in the hope that someone licensed with the proper equipment needed to rescue Mikey will come forward.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
