According to the Daily Mail, it is reported that the stuck cat was spotted on Friday morning by a group of students at the Shandong Agricultural University in the eastern Chinese city of Tai'an.
The pet lovers gathered around the tree to rescue the feline and one of the male students climbed onto the tree to fetch the animal while the others stayed on the ground anticipating any kind of help they could extend to the man. The scared cat quickly clinged onto the man who climbed the tree to rescue it. The footage shows how the feline clinging onto the man's leg, refusing to let go.
The heartwarming video has gone pretty viral in China.

Chinese netizens were quite amused by the cat's unexpected behaviour as the footage quickly amassed over one million views after being shared by multiple Chinese news outlets on Weibo according to DailyMail report.
