Dobby, a small kitten, is taking care all the time at Walden Animal Hospital in Sudbury, Ont., After being injured in a fire in a garage.
Last Saturday, the taboo was discovered when a fire brigade returned to the scene of the fire that had occurred the day before.
Jesse Oshell, deputy chief of fire at Greater Sudbury, says firefighters often return to check if there is anything that could burn the flame again.
“They are trained to use their senses to assess the environment where the fire starts and goes out,” he added.
However, when the firefighters returned to the scene, the fire captain heard the cat hiding in adjacent bushes. According to Oshell, he had crusted tar all over his body.
He explained, “The kitty couldn’t get any farther and was crying out from those bushes.”
The firemen contacted the Greater Sudbury Animal Shelter, who assisted them and connected them with the Walden Animal Hospital, which accepted him.
“According to the most recent information we have from the Walden Animal Hospital, they took care of him, he’s eating well and recovering, and we’re hoping for the best,” Oshell added.
“To remove as much tar as possible, the staff has bathed them with soap. Benefit has third-degree burns on his paws, but despite the agony, he is acting like a “real soldier.Dobby had third
Degree burns on his feet, so he needed extra pain relief and cuddles but he was a real trooper’ is written on the Facebook page of Walden Animal Hospital where kitten Dobby is being treated”.
Treating injured pets, according to Oshel, is a difficult part of the job.
He said, “We keep oxygen masks for animals in our fire trucks, so if we get to a scene where there are dogs or cats, we do our best to save them, we even save birds.”
The benefit is not yet healthy enough for adoption, but Oshell believes there is already a waiting list of individuals who want to take him home, including some of the station firefighters.
The firefighters immediately took action and brought the baby cat to the hospital in Ontario in Canada. Dobby is still there and recovering slowly.
