On Friday, March 3, Bernardo the cat got himself stuck in a tree during the chaos of the severe storms that swept across Middle Tennessee.
That tree is where Bernardo stayed through the weekend and into the next week.
Community members from across Clarksville came together and made multiple attempts to get him down but to no avail.
That is, until Thursday, March 9.
Bernardo’s owner, Sara Sweeney, contacted News 2 to say he was rescued just before 4 p.m. Thursday by Case Eaton and a local tree-trimming crew.
Now, the 8-year-old kitty is back with his family.
