Man climbs trees to save stranded cats

Normer Adams began climbing trees to overcome his fear of heights. Now, at the age of 70, he is rescuing cats in the neighborhood from trees for free.

Dexter is one of the longest feline residents in the Stevens-Swan Humane Society.

He’s been there for more than two years. He is 8 years old and deserves a home of his own. He was given up when his owner had health problems and could no longer take care of him.

Dexter was a little grumpy at first, but he’s really tempered himself and is now quite affectionate and loves the attention.

He likes to give little love nibbles on your nose. His favorite thing is in the sun in the Catio window. The only time he really gets upset is when he has to come back inside so the window can be closed.

He lives in one of the shelter’s group cat rooms and the other cats don’t bother him. Many have come and gone during his stay. Let’s find Dexter his forever home where he can be pampered.

Dexter is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. His adoption fee is reduced to $ 40. Since the shelter is currently closed for viewing, an appointment will be made to meet him as soon as an online application has been approved at
