ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A cat that spent several days stuck in a tree when temperatures frequently plunged below zero with the wind chill has been rescued and appears to be in good health.

Annuki, a male orange tabby, was rescued from about 40 feet up in the tree in Attleboro just before nightfall on Thursday.

Annuki's owner, Matthew Aod, tells The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1bZ0R6H ) he let his cat out on Monday night and he disappeared. He finally got a call from a neighbor on Wednesday who heard Annuki in the tree.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston came to the scene and got Annuki down.

Annuki was taken to a veterinarian and his owner says he's eating a lot after several days with no food.
