    Exclamation "My grandma saw her lost cat Skittles climbing up the tree.

    Hello all,
    Are both two sentences correct?

    "My grandma saw her lost cat Skittles (which was)climbing up the tree."
    "My grandma saw her lost cat Skittles, (which was) climbing up the tree."

    I'd write it like this:

    'My grandma saw her lost cat, Skittles, climbing up a tree'.

    My grandma saw her lost cat, Skittles, which was climbing up a tree.

    ​That is also possible.
