We've all heard the tale-old story of a cat getting stuck in a tree and heroic and amazing firefighters coming to rescue the little guy. When that happens, we are normally so nervous, trying in every way that we can to help the cat down, no matter how long it takes. But what happens if the cat has chosen to go up there on purpose, just to nap and have a good time high up in the tree? You think it might need rescuing, but sometimes, they do not. 

Check out the newest ICanHasCheezburger original animation, in which this ferocious little kitten doesn't need rescuing from anyone. It's an anmation that encompasses being a cat in the most accurate way ever.

Pony And Horse Stuck In Mud For 18 Hours Get Rescued

A horse and a pony were stuck in chest-deep mud near Salinas, Calif., for up to 18 hours during a storm, before finally being rescued. It took a lot of work, and many amazing people joined in helping these horses, thankfully helping these animals get back to safety.

SFGATE reports that the two animals got stuck "on Wednesday night on Limekiln Road, off River Road in an area south of Salinas where a flood of mud rushed down a saturated hillside this week after a powerful storm drenched the River Fire burn scar." Thankfully, the moment the owners of the property spotted the horses, they immediately flagged down passing firefighters and called the SPCA

Not only that but neighbors also responded to the call, coming with shovels and other tools, all in the hopes of helping to dig out the horses and help them. "It definitely took a village to get these horses out," said a Monterey County SPCA spokesperson, Beth Brookhouser. 

The two horses were, of course, very cold after being immobilized in the muck throughout the night, and it took hours for them to stop shivering. They were treated overnight by Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic veterinarians, said SPCA officials. By Friday, "[b]oth horses were recovering on Friday, and were eating and drinking." 

The area remains dangerous for now, but at least this pony and horse are safe - thank s to everyone involved in the rescue. We want to thank all of the people helping these creatures, and if you're interested in more wholesome and heartwarming animal stories, take a look at the 30 most positive animal news stories of January!

A fox had gotten itself hopelessly entangled in some garden netting, turns out this is quite a common problem. Simon and Lawrie, of the Wildlife Aid, were called to help this poor sweet fox out of this tangled mess. It's important to free the fox before constriction wounds set in. 

We believe this fox knew it was being rescued, he had such a cool and calm demeanor, it's almost as he knew that placing faith in these humans was all he could do at the moment. He was in fact quite the cool customer

Thank you Wildlife Aid for coming to this fox's rescue and doing such an incredible job!

Horse Rescued From Icy Mud Hole, Recovering Well

On Monday, Fysik, an 11-year-old retired jumping horse, sunk and got stuck up to his neck in a hole of freezing muddy water. "He was shivering and I just knew when I saw him that there was no way I was going to be able to get him out of that myself," his owner, the operator of Adorado Nino Horse Rescue and Sanctuary near Leduc, Alta, Tracy Benkendorf, told CBC news

Knowing that she couldn't do it alone, she called 911 and posted a picture of the horse on Facebook, asking if anyone knows what to do to help it. "I'm just absolutely beyond grateful for these people that came together in such an incredible, amazing way," she says about the firefighters, the RCMP, her neighbors, her veterinarian and some other people she didn't even know who arrived to help. 

Read more and see Fysik standing strong and covered in blankets below!

Cat Stuck In A Tree For Three Days Finally Rescued Using A Four-Story Scaffolding Platform

For three whole days, residents in Tredegar, Wales have been trying to rescue a cat that got stuck in a tree. The most cliché situation, right? How hard can it be? All you need to do is call the firefighters, and they're gonna get it done. But apparently, it's not always that easy. Failed attempts to get the cat down include residents offering the cat treats, trying to use cherry pickers, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), and the fire brigade. The person who managed to finally get the cat down is a tree surgeon with a four-story scaffolding platform.

All these incredible people who rushed to help this tiny kitten in crisis our heroes in our book! 

Upon hearing a small cry, someone noticed that within the wall there was a kitten stuck. If you listen to the cries, it almost sounds like it's saying, "help! help!"

After discovering the poor kitten who desperately cried for help, a vet arrives on the scene and notices he is dehydrated. So, they first send down some water to help him gain some strength. Next, comes down some much-needed food. And lastly, the rescue itself. 

Again, all these humans who helped and made this happen are truly something else. The world could use more people like this!

Wow, this is not only heroic but pretty bad*ss! 

When the Hurt family came across what they thought to be a dog floating in the water at Marsh-Miller Lake, Wisconsin, they discovered something a bit more unusual. 

Out in the water on a boat, the Hurt family noticed there was a bear in the lake, with a bucket stuck on its head. "I said, 'That ain't no dog. I think that's a bear,'" Tricia Hurt told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We got closer and I said, 'Yeah, that's a bear that got hungry and got its head stuck in a bucket.'"

Apparently, it was a young black bear who was struggling to breathe with a plastic cheese ball container around its head! 

"We honestly believe if we hadn't run into that bear, it wouldn't have made it to shore," Tricia Hurt said. "It was so disoriented, it didn't know where shore was and it was so tired." Brian Hurt commented saying he could hear the bear heavily breathing as the bucket filled with water. 

Luckily, he swam across the right people. The Hurt family ran a successful rescue mission! After circling the bear, Brian Hurt finally managed to grab the plastic container and yank it off. 

Finally free and able the bear, the bear swam away. Tricia Hurt filmed the whole experience and could be heard shouting, "Swim happy!," as the bear swam away. 

Thank you so much, Hurts Family! You guys are true heroes!

The poor little creature was probably super hungry when he stuck his head inside the jar with the hope of licking few last drops of peanut butter. But he didn't think how would he get his head out of it….luckily for him,  Two wildlife rehabilitators, Cathy St Pierre and Bobby Horvath were quick to come to the raccoon's aid and St Pierre uploaded two videos of the whole account to her Facebook page.
