NAMPA, Idaho (CNN/KBOI) - An Idaho cat named Fritz is back with its owners after being stuck on a utility pole for three days.
"She's more than a cat. She's my best friend," said Orville Thrall.
They couldn't get help from the fire department because of live wires, and Idaho Power said it was against their policy. So Orville's daughter Kayla got her friends involved. Neighbors called called everyone they could, even the mayor's office. They also posted about the cat on Facebook before Idaho Power decided to help.
"This did seem to be an extreme situation and we're happy to help our customers and rescue a family pet," said Kevin Winslow, Idaho Power spokesperson.
But getting Fritz down turned into a hairy situaton. The cat climbed higher after being spooked. So Idaho Power had to cut electricity to the top line and soon after Fritz was back in loving arms.
