KEANSBURG - A Keansburg family helped rescue a neighbor's cat that waited out Wednesday's thunderstorms in a tree. 

Jason Putz says he heard the cat meowing all night from his Twilight Avenue home. Putz says he and his young daughter were so upset by the cat's struggle, they decided to call G & J Tree Experts to help rescue the wayward feline.

Crews came out to save the cat, which belonged to a girl down the street.

G & J rescued the cat at no charge, later telling Putz to consider it a service to the community after what they went through after Sandy.
