Even if it’s freezing cold and icy outside, that doesn’t stop a blazing fire from soaring inside a building. By the look of this kitty’s facial expression, it almost looks like he was the one who started the fire to be honest. Yikes!

Either way, this courageous and bold Russian firefighter came to the rescue and saved this feisty ball of fluff. We can only hope that the kitty looks a bit evil because it’s in pure shock of the incident, and will quickly settle down from the whole fiasco.One of Russia’s Most Courageous

Getting Stuck Below the Ground

Fire fighters aren’t just there to fight fires, they’re trained to rescue people—or in this case animals—that are in dangerous situations. Just like cats getting stuck in trees. And even though we’re so used to cats getting stuck up in tall trees, what about getting stuck below the ground?

Somehow, this precious kitten fell into one of the manholes in this parking lot and got stuck there. Thankfully someone called for its rescue, or who knows what would’ve happened!

And it’s safe to say that this fire-fighter was more than happy to help, seeing as he has a huge smile on his face.Getting Stuck Below the Ground

You Can’t Teach Compassion Like This

It’s one thing to be the knight in shining armor that swoops in and rescues people and animals from a burning building. But it’s a whole ‘nother level of compassion to see a firefighter play nurse, and truly care for their rescued victims.

Look at how touching it is for this brave fireman to hold this precious kitty in its arms, and tending to it after suffering from smoke damage. Heart-warming kindness like this isn’t something that you can teach, and we’re so happy to see that there are amazing people in the world who care and are making a difference.You Can’t Teach Compassion Like This

Free at Last!

Oh no! Based on the grayish color of this little feline’s coat, it looks like he might be covered in smoke residue and ashes from being so close to the fire.

And it looks like this cat is just as relieved, and is meowing its little heart out for finally being free at last, free at last!Free at Last!

An Honorable Reptile Rescue

The thing about fires, is that they can spread fast and go out of control in a matter of seconds. And when it comes to buildings on fire, sometimes it can take hours to calm down and put it out.

Across the pond in the UK, this semi-detached building caught fire on the first floor and worked its way up to the roof, and took almost 9 hours to put out!

Firefight Tom Arden was the honorable and jolly firefighter who rescued the iguana from this nasty fire. Cheers to that, mate!An Honorable Reptile Rescue

A True Hero

This story is absolutely precious! That morning, a man left his four cats at home with a candle burning while he left and one of the cats knocked it over. Reddit user lfernandes, the man’s neighbor, shared this photo, explaining we see a firefighter rescuing the cat and giving him CPR for 20 whole minutes until it started to purr.

“[He] came home to his house in flames … While the guy was having an emotional breakdown about losing his cats (‘They’re all I’ve got!’ he kept saying) one of the firefighters searched for nearly 15 minutes and found one alive,” lfernandes wrote.

Two Pups at Once

It looks like saving animals isn’t as rare as we thought when it comes to on the field first aid, but these firemen came up with a makeshift solution with their rescue mission.

We’re not totally sure what the situation is, but considering the fact that the oxygen mask is basically twice the size of these little puppies, we’ve got to give props to the firemen for not giving up and being resourceful with the tools they had.

We can’t get over how cute this moment is! There’s nothing like someone rescuing an innocent pup—especially two at one!Two Pups at Once

We can’t imagine something to be more joyous and exciting than rescuing a pair of friendly felines.

Cats and Rabbits

Looks like this fireman is having quite a fun time with this jumpy cat! But what can we say? Felines aren’t known to always be so calm, cool, and collected.

But the other really sweet part to this story is the fact that the cat wasn’t the only animal the firefighting rescue team saved. Apparently, several other adorable and fuzzy felines as well as a fluffy rabbit were rescued by local firefighters in the Caledonia, Wisconsin area that day. How cool!Cats and Rabbits

A Special Bond Between Strangers

Oh boy! We know that some steeds are known to be quite stubborn and can seem to be quite stuck in the mud with their actions, but it looks like this little horse ended up in this mess by accident.

Either way, this UK firefighter is doing his best to keep this precious steed calm and free the poor horsey from this miserable situation.

Raining Cats and Dogs

The funny thing about cats is that even though you never really know what’s going on in their head, their facial expressions are still incredible animated and can tell a whole story. Just like this hilarious tabby right here.

This man is clearly on a mission to get this cat to safety, but this precious cat’s face looks like it’s absolutely confused about the whole situation. And even though there’s the famous expression about it raining cats and dogs, cats aren’t used to floods the way we are—so it makes sense it seems a bit confused.

Don’t worry, though, kitty, you’re clearly in good hands!Raining Cats and Dogs
