A Knoxville cat has gone from being stuck atop a tree to being a gift under the tree.
The black cat had drawn concern from neighbors in West Knoxville after he got stuck up in a tree for nearly a week. Thankfully, a couple of tree service companies -- Mencer's Tree Service and Baumann Tree Service -- volunteered to help. Miles Mencer was out early Tuesday morning and was able to get him down.
Now a couple days later, the cat has found a fitting and loving home with Matt and Ashlyn Baumann, owners of Baumann Tree Service.
He also has a name: Phantom.
"We were thrilled to be able to adopt him and give him a happy home. Plus...this guy obviously loves the trees," Baumann Tree Service posted to Facebook Thursday.
Ashlyn said they are loving the cuddles with their new family member.
