Even though cats are designed to rocket up a tree as fast as a squirrel, did you know their instincts end there? If your stranded kitty hasn't learned to climb down backward, she'll grow wings and fly before she ever attempts this scary trip down!

This funny fact's why climbing experts like Patrick Brandt are so handy! He's certainly got the magic touch as he rescues soiled and mewing little Georgia (Patrick's hundredth cat rescue) from her family's tall tree.

The most our freezing and battered friends can do is try to avoid all those dangerous rocks shooting towards them before they're finally rescued by the two rafters who managed to stay afloat. Things could've been worse... at least there wasn't a BEAR swimming beside them, which is exactly what happens in the second video.  View Now
