A PSEG Long Island crew came to the rescue of a kitten in Copiague that became stranded atop a power pole Saturday, a company spokeswoman said.

The frightened feline climbed to the top of the utility pole on Coolidge Avenue and Montauk Highway, according to Robert Misseri, the head of Smithtown-based Guardians of Rescue, who received a call about the imperiled kitten Saturday afternoon.

When Misseri arrived, he said the small black cat was perched on the pole, “holding on for dear life.”

“There was a high wind warning last night and the poor thing was looking down at us, scared to death,” he said.

A PSEG crew arrived about 3 p.m. to bring the kitten down to safety, a PSEG spokeswoman said.

For the safety of the cat and the PSEG employees, an “intentional outage” was created, the spokeswoman said. Power was restored shortly afterward.

The kitten, which Misseri says is about 3 months old and “very friendly,” will soon be available for adoption from Save-A-Pet animal shelter in Port Jefferson Station.
