I went to agricultural college and had a lot to do with different animals on a daily bases.
NOT TRUE THAT CATS GO DOWN FROM TREES EASILY. Some cats are so afraid to go down the tree, that they will stay there for days. I have 2 cats and had to help one of them few times.
Years ago there was a kitten on the tree for about 2 or 3 days so when I learn about it called NYC 911 - lots of BS but no luck, thn I tried ASPCA and they had no clue (told me to leave it alone and cat will jump off the tree). So I got outside my office and flagged local phone company van, explained the situation, and with his long ladder he took that kitten from the tree.

Now that's what I call being resourceful!

We think that the dog in the yard behind chased her as she saw the dog yesterday and came running onto the deck and started growling. 2 days prior she was walking towrds the fence when she saw the dog. It's fenced in ,but I guess kitty could have gone over the fence.Guess she won't do that agan in a hurry- PLEASE!
Our other cat lies in the middle of the lawn and washes herself to tease the dog, knowing fine well that they can't get her.Although a Boxer could probably jump a standard post and rail fence-4ft maybe.

I was so so worried when she started closing her eyes and stopped calling us. She's quite thin anyway-we've only had her for 2 months- wouldn't have had much fat to burn.

Back to her normal bossy and demanding self now

Thanks again for all the posts.
I posted on facebook and the acquaintance that we got the kitten from didn't even respond, so I was glad of the support from you guys!
