Happy Ending

A stray cat, which was stuck in a tree for several days in Blackstone, was rescued Monday afternoon, March 25th on the premises of Blackstone Self Storage at the corner of West Entrance Road and Lester Street. Heather Vankuren and Michael Payne apparently have a new pet. Also participating in the rescue were Mica Lacks, Sgt. Roemello Melgoza of Ft. Pickett (formerly of Chicago), and State Trooper Tremaine Peterson of Newport News. Using ladders and the climbing ability of Sgt. Melgoza, Heather, and Michael, the group effort paidoff. Heather at presstime said the male cat “was still purring up a storm.” She may name him “Tree.”
