Concerned citizens set out food and water in an attempt to entice this cat down from the power pole where it perched for days. The cat’s predicament caught the attention of a Grand Junction television crew. The cat was finally rescued by a municipal light and power crew and has hopefully learned its lesson.
After a tomcat was observed on top of a power pole at 3rd and Kellogg for several days in a row, citizens began calling the City of Delta expressing concern. Rather than shut down the power to hundreds of residents, municipal light and power opted to leave the animal alone and let it come down on its own, which is generally what will happen.
