Meow to Meow-th: Mass. Firefighter Revives Cat

Consider this my 9/11 tribute to firefighters. Every day, they risk their lives to save people — and as you'll see here, animals, too. Arsonists set an apartment in New Bedford, MA, on fire, killing a couple cats in the process. (Sad!) But ferrets, dogs, frogs (!), and this lucky cat were saved and revived by awesome firemen. At the beginning of this video, you'll see one sweet fireman stroking a dog as it lies on its side, while Al "my future husband" Machado gives mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to this cat. Then he just pets it. The sight of a big guy taking care of a helpless cat just makes me swoon. When asked what it tasted like to give mouth-to-mouth to a cat, he laughed and said, "Like fur." Al, we know you're a softie! And we love it. (Click here to read the whole story.)
