Great story! IMO, firefighters couldn't even do their regular jobs unless they were heros, and this "above and beyond" action just demonstrates the enormous hearts that make them that way. Thanks for posting it, Jeane!

Thanks for that story Jeane. I love it when firemen go "above and beyond" to help a furkid. It was amazing that cat even survived the fire.

that was a pretty bad fire. it displaced alot of people and one old woman died in the fire (it was an apartment building). All the kitties got out.

on a related note in the papers today they were talking about a fire in the bronx where they uncovered a hellhole of poor kitties, most of them were saved and taken to animal care and control. It's mind boggling how people can live like that.

Just... horrific. Who knows how long this would have gone on but for that fire, and who knows how many similar, undiscoverd circs still exist? It makes me feel so helpless.

I hope those kitties will remember how to use a litterbox so they can be adopted out. How horrible for them to live like that with no litterbox in sight.............poor babies. In this case the fire was a good thing. It got them out of that squalor. Are they going to press charges on the people who kept them in such filth?

on a much happier note, and going back to the original story of the kitty rescued from the burned building
apparently there was another kitty lost belonging to another family in the same building.
Well, the woman who lived in one of the units was allowed back into her apartment the other day to collect some things, and her Kitty was still there!

I am so happy Misty was okay if only a bit scared. After what she'd been through I don't blame her for being scared. Glad that nephew could coax her out. Now she can start to put that horrible fire memory behind her.

Reminded me of Wuzzy, who hid in the basement ceiling after my sis finally got him back 2 1/2 months after he'd ran off. She couldn't get him to come out but I did.
