Neighbors called called everyone they could, even the mayor's office. They also posted about the cat on Facebook before Idaho Power decided to help.
"This did seem to be an extreme situation and we're happy to help our customers and rescue a family pet," said Kevin Winslow, Idaho Power spokesperson.
But getting Fritz down turned into a hairy situaton. The cat climbed higher after being spooked. So Idaho Power had to cut electricity to the top line and soon after Fritz was back in loving arms.
