UNICOI COUNTY, TN -

A four day ordeal for a cat in a Unicoi County neighborhood concluded with a happy ending.

John Graham called News Channel 11 concerned about a cat that had been stuck in a tree outside his Scioto Road home for four days.

A television station employee posted a photo and an appeal for help on Facebook.

Shortly after that, Unicoi County Animal Control and the Unicoi Volunteer Fire Department arrived at the home and set about cat from it's perch.

Graham said he tried to rescue the cat but could not reach him.   Cat calls, even some fried chicken, failed to lure the cat down.

"it was just good to see everybody come together get something accomplished," said Graham.  "I hope something good happens to it."

The cat was taken to the Unicoi County Animal Shelter and will be monitored to see if it is okay.
