Cat Refuses To Let Go Of Firefighter Who Rescued Her From California Fire
Ryan Coleman, Engine Captain at Fairview Valley Fire Department, shared a clip of himself with the cat refusing to let go of him after he rescued her near to the site of the deadly Paradise wildfires.
Despite bringing the feline to safety, Ryan explained that she clung on anyway. Cute? Very. But practical? Not so much.
Ryan had to carry out the rest of his job with the cat still hanging on to him. In the clip, he can be heard saying: "Let's go for a walk. Where are we going? We're walking around."
In a caption alongside his video, Ryan wrote: "Kitty rescue. She just chilled on my neck and shoulders as I'd walk around." In the clip the kitty looks absolutely delighted to be hanging with Ryan, rubbing her face against his and kneading at him with her little paws. Very cute content, this.
The video has racked up thousands of viewers already with many commenters telling Ryan he should take care of the cat if no owners come forward as she 'clearly loves' him. However, in response to one such comment, he replied: "I wish. I'm still out here."
Ryan is one of the hundreds of firefighters currently tackling the wildfires that are raging through California.
Sharing a post about the blazes just a few days prior to his cat video, Ryan wrote: "On scene of the Camp Fire and starting shift #1. My heart and prayers go out to the more than 2,000 families that lost their homes and all the people that lost loved ones.
"Hoping for the safety of my crew and fellow firefighters. I'm excited to be here helping out, and I'm ready to get started doing what we do!"
The wildfires have caused widespread devastation, with at least 77 killed and almost 1,000 still reported missing. Thousands of families have had to leave their homes, belongings, and in some cases, pets as they flee from the fires.
