Local news lady Terri Furman posted about a scared kitten trapped on top of a live utility pole. The family was desperate to get Patches down safe. Thankfully, an Xcel Energy worker came to the rescue.

Here is Terri's post from Facebook:

As stated in some of the comments, that pole was hot and live. For the fire department to attempt a rescue would have been too dangerous.

Enter: an employee from utility company Xcel Energy.

Patches is safe, and the family is grateful to have their kitty, who also has vision problems, back home safe last night.

Heroes don't always wear capes.
