YouTube doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-tinervin will need to dig through the advice provided by YouTube, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-tinervin can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-tinervin's own words
You guys removed one of my videos and gave me a strike. The video was uploaded ** years ago and was of a cat grooming himself. The video was called Kitty ****. It wasn't sexual at all unless you are into animals in a sexual way. I just checked and there is the same video on someone else account and there are a lot of videos with cats and many other animals masturbating on YouTube, but mine is the only one you took down and hit me with a strike over. For twelve years no one has had an issue with that video until now. It wasn't showing anything that violated any YouTube rule. And I want it restored and the strike removed. Either that or you better start going after everyone else who has similar videos on your site. Twelve years that video was on my channel, twelve years, no one complained. Restore the video or go after everyone else. Don't target me And remove the strike or start going after everyone else. It's a video of a cat for Christ sake. Stop censoring nature.

GetHuman-tinervin did not yet indicate what YouTube should do to make this right.
