Maybe he did it for the YouTube fame.
A cat who appeared to be stuck outside of a balcony recently stirred up a lot of attention - and trouble, in Brisbane, Australia. In a video shared by Reddit user Supermantis, a firefighter arrived to the scene with a crane and a plan to save this cat from his dire situation. The rescue was a pricey one - there were two units present and they even knocked down a post outside an upmarket hotel in order to gain access to the feline in distress.
And so, there sat the cat majestically, waiting for his knight in shining armor to pluck him away from a potentially tragic fate, with an entire audience watching to boot.
