The kitten in the clip is stuck up a tree and, encouraged by it’s owner, the cat tries to go up and get it down.

But the kitten seems so scared that instead of letting it’s mum pick it up, it climbs higher instead.

Mama cat can be seen trying to pick the kitten up with her mouth, but the stubborn little furball just won't let go of the branch.

She tries and tries but the cat just can’t get a grip on the kitten. So she does the only thing left to do: climbs down slowly to show her baby that it can do it.

When she gets to the bottom, the cats owner says: “No, you gotta get your baby.”

But, just like most mums, we’re sure this cat knew what she was doing. She waits patiently at the bottom and, eventually, the kitten manages to climb down.
