National Briefing / AND FINALLY . . .

Rescue ends all warm and fuzzy

September 11, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A lucky cat owes one of its nine lives to a firefighter who revived it with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Al Machado rescued the cat from a burning apartment Tuesday, telling the Standard Times of New Bedford, Mass., that he began performing mouth-to-mouth as he carried it outside.

Video shot at the scene shows Machado bent over, breathing into the cat's mouth. The cat, a tiger angora, was revived and resting comfortably soon after.

Asked what it tasted like to give mouth-to-mouth to a cat, Machado laughed, grimaced and said: "Like fur."
