“At that point my friend, Rusty Mills, started sending food up to her with a slingshot,” Marcum said. “We were all so set on saving her, but he really took to her a lot.”
While Marcum helped make arrangements with another fire department, Mills stayed at the cliff from sunrise to sunset to keep watch on the cat and try to see if she was eating any of the food that he had launched up to her.
On day 10, the Logan Fire Department arrived on the scene with a 100-foot ladder — which was finally tall enough to reach the cat. She got spooked when the firefighter got close, so he set a trap on the ledge and covered it with a blanket in hopes that she would go inside.
