Kitten’s Life Saved by Fireman (Video)

After writing about a cat killer, it was so uplifting to view this video of a fireman saving a little kitten in a house fire. You’ll want to get some kleenex out for this one, but they’ll be happy tears.

The young kitten was very fortunate that the fire department had pet oxygen masks. Not all do. If you believe that more should, please sign this petition to tell fire responders to carry pet oxygen masks. If Sanchez or Gina were inside during a house fire, I’d be eternally grateful if my fire department arrived with pet oxygen masks.

Enjoy! And thanks for sharing your comments about the video and pet oxygen masks below.

I was happy that the kitten revived, but when I googled the story to find out how the kitten was doing, there are stories that the kitten died from its injuries.

If having a bit of a cry is good for you, I just improved my health. So good to see.
