"It seems to be cat season out here," Annie DeGraw, an APS spokesperson, told the assembled camera crews. "There's been cats on poles all over."

This time, the cat — a different one than last time — climbed up a light pole at 30th Street and Van Buren. APS crews showed up with a cherry-picker and pried the cat off the pole. The cat did not seem happy about it, and meowed a lot before running off into a dirt lot.
