Cat named “Kitty” gets attention from firefighter Andrew Jackson following a fire today in Austin, Texas

This is a cat named “Kitty” who is getting attention from firefighter Andrew Jackson following a fire today in Austin, Texas.

We all love firefighters when they save cats and look after them. They make good photos but don’t take that to mean that all I care about is a good photo. It is just good to see the authorities in the form of public services being noticeably tender and caring about domestic cats. We sometimes see a lack of interest in some sections of the pubic services such as the police.

    I have found that firefighters are generally more compassionate toward the anipals — whether at a fire or elsewhere. . . God bless them!! I know that a great deal of fire service stations (here in the US) carry the necessary equipment to help anipals in distress from a fire — breathing equipment especially. . . ♥♥♥

      Agreed. Firefighters seem to have a more compassionate nature than police officers. It is probably down to the nature of the work and the sort of person who wants to do that sort of work. I always think that police officers are a short step away from being criminals.

        I agree Michael. . . In the US, most firefighters are also paramedics — hence the *caring* of life — ANY life. . . I have somne good friends who are firefighters/paramedics, and they are most wonderful people!! ♥♥♥
