ATTLEBORO, Mass. — A cat that spent several days stuck in a tree when temperatures frequently plunged below zero with the wind chill has been rescued and appears to be in good health.

Annuki, a male orange tabby, was rescued from about 40 feet up in the tree in Attleboro just before nightfall Thursday.

Annuki’s owner, Matthew Aod, tells The Sun Chronicle he let Annuki out Monday night and the cat disappeared. He finally got a call from a neighbor on Wednesday who heard Annuki in the tree.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston came to the scene and got Annuki down.

Annuki was taken to a veterinarian, and his owner says the cat is eating a lot after several days with no food.
