    Cat Saved From Fire Thanks to Pet Oxygen Mask Cherise Udell August 26, 2013 9:02 am

    http://www.southbendtribune.com/mult...a4bcf6878.html

    Fire fighters who responded recently to a house ablaze in South Bend, Indiana learned there was a kitty named “Little” inside the burning building. Fortunately, the fire fighters had a few pet oxygen masks (not all fire departments have them) and dashed inside to find Little. Firemen Troy Platz and Ken Knoell located the black and white cat cowering in a corner and immediately put on the life-saving mask while rushing him back outside.
    When Little’s owner, Jocelyn Wallace, saw her beloved cat she ran toward him with her arms outstretched and when Little saw Jocelyn, he did the same. To see the photos that captured their emotional reunion visit the the South Bend Tribune.
    After peeking at these moving photos, consider calling your local fire department to see if they have pet oxygen masks for our four-legged friends. As noted above, not all fire departments have them. If your fire department is lacking this pet-friendly equipment consider holding a fundraiser to get these life-saving masks in the hands of your first responders.
    And let’s not forget to give THREE CHEERS to the firefighters in our communities for all of the incredible and selfless work they do time and time again for those of us in need — pets included.

    Wow! God bless everyone concerned here (including Little, of course).

    I love the photo of the firefighter holding Little, and Little and his owner are reaching out to each other.

    Thanks for posting this story, Candace.

    At the Westchester Cat Show every November they have a drive to raise money for pet oxygen masks and donate them to the different fire departments.

    What a wonderful idea!

    I need to find out if the local fire department has any of those.
