When people hear of cats and firefighters, they often think of the former getting stuck in a tree and then rescued by the latter. Recently, a firefighter rescued a kitten from a far more dangerous situation: a burning building.

Firefighter Cory Kalanick responded to a call in Fresno, California. With a GoPro camera attached to his helmet, his discovering of an unconscious kitten alone in a smoke-filled room, and the rescue efforts to follow, were all caught on camera. The footage shows Kalanic rush the kitten outside and immediately give the tiny feline oxygen and TLC. Prepare to have your heart melted as the little bundle regains consciousness.

Thank you, Cory Kalanick, for your compassion!

    Ecorazzi rocks! Thanks for highlighting this video. Check out THE RESCUE on Youtube for the original video shot by the firefighter (my husband) who saved the kitty (Lucky). All the money from the ads on the original video are going to an emergency vet clinic to help other animals affected by disaster.
