JD's Take: So I took a long look at that tree and thought to myself, could I even climb that thing? I mean, that's an intense tree and an elderly lady climbed all the way to the top for a cat that wanted no part of her? Can we sign her up for other ridiculous feats? Can she punch through brick walls to get to her pet hamster? Will she swim 6 miles of cold ocean water to rescue her pet fish? I can barely fill my cats food dish every morning before work and this woman is pretty much the female Tarzan (elderly edition). Huge props.
