Monday morning Bay County Animal Control and a utility company helped Scooter get out of a tree.
Dogs chased him up the tree where he seemed unable to get down, going days without food and water. Animal Control says the kitty is healthy. His owner says Scooter seemed a little skittish at first, but after eating a lot of food he was fine.
"They put a pole on top of him so he couldn't go up and finally he jumped to a different tree, but not very high, and started to climb up, but they put a pole up there, kind of pushed him down, he got down and scampered away."
Hayes says he felt sorry for Scooter and is glad to have him safely at home.
