Almond, the cat, won’t leave tree

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. S ince then, the cat has rema

And why should she leave

The 66-year-old retired carpenter also created a protected straw bed for her in a hollow in the tree and set up a dry food feeder, Wisconsin State Journal reports.
