The lifeless cat was found by the New Orleans Fire Department close by a residential building fire that started about noon on Wednesday.
To resuscitate the unfortunate fella, they used an oxygen mask made especially for animals.
Fifteen inhabitants were evacuated from the building by local authorities, and no person was injured in the fire.
Two kittens that were stuck in one of the flats, however, struggled with smoke inhalation.
In order to try to revive the suffocating kitties with oxygen, firefighters moved them to street level.
One rescue responder can be seen in the video covering the white kitten’s face with an oxygen mask while petting its head.
The masks are available in a range of sizes and might also be worn by other animals.
A ginger and white cat that is immobile is also given oxygen while dozing off on a purple sheet.
In an effort to restore it, numerous firemens stroked its belly and neck and pumped oxygen into its mouth.
The kitty is heard being examined by one fireman, ” Just how is it? Really feeling better? “
Another firefighter can be seen giving the cat a drink by putting bottled water into his hand.
” I guess he has eight more lives,” said Doug Cardinale of the New Orleans Fire Department,
The two cats are shown in a cat provider beside each other near the conclusion of the video.
Whether the kitties and their owner have already been reunited is unknown at this time.
According to records, the flat where the fire originated was totally destroyed and deemed unsuitable for habitation.
