One Queens cat is looking for the purrfect home.

On Dec. 20, FDNY Battalion 46 rescued a cat, now named Dorothy Gale, from a tree three stories high in front of Newton High School in Elmhurst, according to Councilman Daniel Dromm.

Dorothy had been stuck in the tree for three days and residents had attached a sign to the tree looking for help. Dromm’s office contacted animal advocacy organization NYCLASS and other animal advocates. Firefighters were called to conduct the actual rescue.

“My office works hard to serve the community,” Dromm said. “Recently, we received a call from a constituent in Elmhurst stating that a cat had been stuck in a tree for three days. I am an animal rights activist and knew we had to help. We immediately started making calls to bring Dorothy Gale to safety. I’m glad we helped. Now, we hope someone can give her a nice, warm, permanent home.”

Since being saved, Dorothy has paid a visit to the vet, where she was spayed and given all her shots.

Currently in good health, Dorothy is living with foster mom Annet Artani of Miney’s Rescue of Love, who writes on Facebook that the cat is “very friendly.”
