WATCH: NYPD Saves Cat Stuck In Tree In Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — NYPD officers took time out of their day to save a cat that was stuck up in a tree in Brooklyn Tuesday morning.

Kim Berzac heard the cat meowing while walking by Vernon and Stuyvesant avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

She then flagged down some police officers on the street.

Using a ladder and a special pole, they fished the kitten out of the tree.

The rescue took about two hours.

Berzac decided to take the cat home.

“It was really sad. I heard it was there since last night,” Berzac said. “I wasn’t going to leave until she came down. Looks like I have a little kitten now.”

She named the cat Red and already has two other cats.
