Cat up a pole west of Nelson

A concerned citizen spotted a cat up a hydro pole this morning at the government pull-out west of Nelson on Highway 3A and 6.

A house cat was spotted at the top of a hydro pole in the government pull out west of Nelson on Highway 3A and 6 this morning.

It’s unclear if the feline is enjoying the view or waiting for unsuspecting prey to fly by. The cat may have discovered it’s harder to climb down what it climbed up as it sits perched on the top of the narrow pole.

Concerned citizen Chris Charlwood called the fire department and hydro, who said they may look into the situation.
