At 1:03 this morning, a concerned South End citizen filed a 311 complaint:
Cat up tree. Was fighting with something and ran up tree. 1255 am sat. Tree in front of 149 Worcester st. 02118
But before a 311 operator could break out the old joke about cat skeletons in trees, the concerned citizen filed an update at 1:35 a.m.:
Cat in tree was a raccoon and it just made its way down from 149 Worcester st Boston south end.
A grateful 311 marked the case closed at 5:02 a.m.
