MACEDONIA, Ohio — Firefighters are helping to raise money for a cat rescued from a trailer fire Tuesday afternoon.

No one was home at the time of the fire, but crews went above and beyond, helping to rescue an injured cat from the home.

“Misty” was found unconscious, but still breathing. Firefighters put a specially designed oxygen mask on the cat, after which the cat started showing more signs of life.

“Misty” was taken by emergency officials to Macedonia Veterinary Clinic where the cat was stabilized and put into an oxygen therapy tank. The cat was then transferred to an emergency clinic in Bedford Heights for monitoring.

The family does not have insurance for their home, which was a total loss.

“Misty” is in need of more medical care and the family is unable to care for the cat’s medical bills.

Macedonia firefighters are helping to raise money to give the cat a fighting chance, according to Fire Chief Tim Black.

If you’re interested in helping, donations can be made to the Macedonia Fire Professional Firefighters Association Local 3947.

You can contact the station at (330) 468-8339.

Chief Black said any additional donations will go towards providing animal rescue kits for other fire departments.
