Update: Colorado Cat Rescued from Water Tower Is Ready for a Home

Updated

A cat that was stuck on a water tower in LaSalle, Colorado, is out of clouds and in the safe hands of a veterinary clinic.

An operations manager for the LaSalle Fire Department told PEOPLE in an email that a specialized rescue team out of Fort Collins scaled the tower to rescue the kitty. Denver 7 identified the rescue team as Steve Fleming, Daniel Winning and Brady Thomas.

The cat had been stuck 100 ft. in the air since Sunday. “He kept moving around on us, I didn’t know where he was going,” said one rescuer, who helped save the cat on Wednesday.

A drone, cat food and a cat carrier were among the items used to rescue the cat, Denver 7 said.

The cat was taken to the Valley Veterinary Clinic afterward The Greeley Tribune reported, and is doing just fine.

“He’s eating, he’s drinking,” veterinarian Anita Reeve said. “He’s very active, very loving.”

Potential adopters have been inquiring about the cat and it sounds like he’ll find a home soon.

“We’re going to be very selective about his home,” Reeve told the Tribune. “I’m probably going to require he’s an indoor kitty.”
