The old adage of firefighters saving cats from trees isn’t a dead one. 

Germantown firefighters proved that Wednesday when Engine Company 64 rescued Waffles the cat from a tree in -16 degree weather. 

In a post on Facebook, the fire department said Waffles was up in a 24-foot tree, and firefighters climbed a ladder to get the scared kitty down. 

Waffles has since been returned to its owners and is back in the warm house.
