Firefighters usually don’t interact with cats until a cat gets stuck in a tree or telephone pole and needs rescuing. Fortunately, firefighters are prepared for any event and in Tampa, firefighters rescued a cat from a house fire.

Three adults and a child safely escaped the burning house but their cat was trapped inside for about 20 minutes before firefighters could enter the home. Although they found the cat alive, firefighters had to use a donated oxygen mask to revive the feline. The cat may have used up all nine of its lives, but at least its still alive, thanks to the quick thinking of Tampa’s firefighters. The next time you see a firefighter, rest assured they’re trained to save people and cats.
