Yolo County animal services officials are seeking a home for one of the animal shelter’s more illuminating occupants.

Ember, an orange tabby, was stranded for several days atop a utility pole on Chaparral Way in West Sacramento, said Vicky Fletcher, the shelter’s business services manager.

“Neighbors had seen this cat on top of the pole for days and were distraught by his plight but absolutely helpless to do anything,” Fletcher said in a news release.

That is, until PG&E worker Evan Cliff came to the rescue.

“Evan cleared out his large tool belt and climbed up the utility pole very carefully, all the while wincing inside knowing this cat was within mere inches of being electrocuted or seconds away from jumping,” Fletcher said. “When he got to the top, he carefully picked up this scared feline, held him to his chest, then gently placed him in his tool belt for the climb down.”

With no one knowing the cat’s owner, Cliff took the cat to the animal shelter, but he was not microchipped, and no one has come forward to claim him.

“Now, Ember needs a home,” Fletcher said “Ember is a trusting boy, very sweet and humble. He is quiet, affectionate, engaging and enjoys being held.”

Fletcher said Ember would do best in a single-cat household “and will make someone a loyal friend.”

The cost of adopting Ember is $50, a fee that includes the cost of neutering, testing for FELV/FIV, rabies vaccine, FVRCP vaccine and microchipping. For those who can’t adopt but would like to help the shelter, donations of liquid laundry detergent, Frontline or Advantage flea preventative, and cat toys are appreciated.

The Yolo County Animal Shelter is at 140-C Tony Diaz Drive, off East Gibson Road in Woodland. The shelter is open to the public 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, with limited services from 1 to 5 p.m Mondays. The facility is closed for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

For more information about Ember or other animals, call 530-668-5287, ext. 0, during business hours.
