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.
