A cat that found itself on the top of a utility pole in Arizona has been safely rescued.

Several viewers reached out to's Scripps sister station ABC15 on Tuesday reporting the cat had been on the pole for three days. One viewer said he contacted local organizations to try and get the cat back on the ground, but no one had been able to help.

ABC15 reached out to local utility companies to see who was responsible for the pole, and a troubleshooter from Salt River Project responded to help the cat.

The worker went up in a bucket, but as he approached the top, the cat scrambled down the pole and ran off into a nearby alley.

Viewers were concerned for the cat's welfare as temperatures have been close to freezing in Phoenix over the past three nights.
