"I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it." ~ Abraham Lincoln "An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." ~ Martin Buber "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~ Anatole France "In the beginning, God created man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the cat" ~ Warren Eckstein

Cat Born in Tree

A Wisconsin man said the cat living in the maple tree outside his home has never left the tree in it's entire 7 months of life. It lived solo in the hollow of the tree, about 12 feet up.

The 7-month-old cat was born in a maple tree in Ron Venden's back yard, but when the mother cat moved her kittens from their perch, she left little Almond behind, Venden tells Wisconsin State Journal. Since then, the cat has remained in his treetop home.

Retired carpenter, Ron Venden, 66, has been caring for the cat which he named Almond. Venden climbs on a ladder to check on and feed Almond twice a day, spoiling her with fresh food like meatloaf, salami and fresh milk. He also created a protected straw bed with protective tarp in the tree to protect him from the icy Wisconsin elements, he even set up a dry food feeder for him.

Venden told local newspaper that he had never seen any paw prints in the snow around the tree, and it was confirmed by his relative saying that they had not seen the cat anywhere other than the tree. He tried bringing the cat down several times but Almond resisted and scratched him.

"I want to see how long it stays here," he said, happily petting his tree-bound friend."I kind of enjoy it. Though the neighbors think I'm goofy."
