Ruby's Rescue

Ruby, a 6 month old kitten who had just been adopted by her family 2 months ago, got outside and climbed a tree in her front yard.  I went out the evening of her 3rd day in the tree to see if I could help her down.  Ruby was a star rescuee -- she climbed toward me as I started up to her, and the entire rescue only took about 30 minutes.  During and after the rescue concerned neighbors aware of Ruby's predicament slowed down as they drove by to ask for updates.  The neighbors couldn't have been more relieved than the family's two daughters who were particularly glad to have Ruby back safe and sound.
