Canopy Cat Rescue gets Shoreline cat out of tree - with no harm to the rescuer

Shaun Sears and Tom Otto have an unusual business model.

They work on-call, 24/7, all over central Puget Sound, and they let their customers' owners decide how much to pay them.

Shaun and Tom are cat-loving arborists. As Canopy Cat Rescue, their business is getting cats out of trees.

This week they made rescues in Shoreline and Kenmore.

"For the most part," said Shaun, "the cats we rescue are very happy to see us, but sometimes ... they want to Kill Us!!" 
"That was certainly the case with Chirpa from Shoreline. 
"She was described as being just a little "standoffish", but not crazy. When I approached her in the tree, she was in straight up ATTACK-mode. 
"This didn't change how much love and compassion I put into her rescue because I understood she was very stressed and scared ... so I didn't take it personally. 
"Thankfully, I was able to get her down with my face still attached."

Shaun takes photos or short videos of every rescue and posts them on the Canopy Cat Rescue Facebook page.

Now Zuzu, from Kenmore, was much calmer - until she was just really surprised to see herself in the phone before Shaun took the photo.


We created CANOPY CAT RESCUE in 2009 after discovering how very difficult it was for people to find help for their cats stuck high in trees.

As cat people ourselves, we know how horrible it feels when a cat is missing and then cries for help are heard high up in a tree.

Cold, hungry, scared, tired, and dehydrated; many cats unfortunately suffer each year after being stuck in trees.

That is why CANOPY CAT RESCUE rescues cats — anytime, day or night, in all kinds of weather.

All cats deserve to be rescued and reunited with their loved ones. We work on a donations-only basis, because it’s our mission and passion to rescue any cat stuck in any tree regardless of their families financial situation.

We rescue A LOT of cats — hundreds every year from all over the state.
