Firemen Revive Unconscious Cat Using Special Pet Oxygen Mask

An orange tabby cat’s life was saved using a special oxygen mask made just for pets. The New Orleans Fire Department found the lifeless feline in the hallway near a fire that broke out in a residential building around noon last Wednesday.

“I guess he has eight more lives,” said Doug Cardinale with the New Orleans Fire Department. Two other cats who lived in the house escaped safely. The unresponsive cat was put on oxygen and revived within a few minutes.

I think it's wonderful to see 4 burly Firemen trying to save the life of one little cat. And I think it's wonderful that these masks were designed to help save the lives of animals & other little lives <3

THAT IS SO NEAT. We all (mostly all) who have cats know that they are precious and are a family member so to see this happening must have thrilled the owner. Having a fire is one thing but to know that your cat didn't die? MUCH MORE IMPORTANT!!!

It's amazing how the animals stay still during the process, almost as if they instinctively know the mask will help them. I'm guessing they can read the intent of the rescuers?

I am extremely glad that the fire fighters are provided with oxygen masks to save animals... I'm certain everyone is elated when a pet's life or any creature's life is saved form a fire.

I wished we had these here. One cat owner just lost 8 because of a fire. They died from smoke inhalation. They did manage to save 7 of hers though.
