In January 2020, a team of firefighters in Mexico were called to a building because a cat seemed to be stuck on the rooftop.
Stray cat rescued from roof
A member of the team carefully climbed up a ladder, placed the cat in a cage, and came back down with him safely in tow.
The cat was fed and given water. The team soon fell in love with him, but with no identification, they knew his fate was to return to the streets. That is, unless they decided to adopt him.
Spoiled team member
So, you guessed it, the little white and ginger cat was named ‘Raul’ and was officially adopted by the rescue team.
Today, he spends most of his days overseeing their work as he naps in the shade. But he’s an essential member of the team nonetheless, and no-one could imagine their lives without him.
Proof that every life is worth saving! Happy trails, Raul!
