Thanks to SMECO for cat res­cue

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

June 22 was the third day that my aunt’s cat was stuck in a tree about 60 to 80 feet in the air.

We had been call­ing around to lo­cal tree com­pa­nies, the fire depart­ment, the po­lice depart­ment, an­i­mal con­trol and res­cue since Mon­day even­ing when the cat got stuck in the tree. With no avail to our ef­forts, I tried a last re­sort and called South­ern Mary­land Elec­tric Co­op­er­a­tive (SMECO).

SMECO came out with first a bucket truck. Know­ing this truck would not be tall enough to reach the cat, Ninja, they called their co-work­ers. Five trucks, two hours in the scorch­ing heat and sev­eral crew mem­bers later, Ninja was res­cued.

I would like to rec­og­nize SMECO for their valiant ef­forts. Thank you and I ap­pre­ci­ate your time.
