The old adage "you never see a dead cat in a tree" didn't apply in this case.

City of Manassas firefighters brought out Tower 501 to assist rescuing a big housecat stuck between two branches of a tall tree on Malvern Court Monday night.

The 31-pound feline was "legit stuck," the fire department said in an Instagram post.

The big kitty was safely brought down to climb again another day.

"We were happy to be able to help before any serious injury happened," the department said.
