While braving the cold outside, a little feline visitor surprised the firefighters at Steinbach Fire Department, situated in Manitoba, Canada, by peeking through the station window.
Kelvin Toews, the Fire Chief, spotted her standing by the window during his walk. One of the department members went outside and she immediately approached them.
A stray kitten had been loitering in the area with no place to call home. Despite the harsh weather conditions, the firefighters couldn’t bear to leave her outside, so they took her in and showed her an abundance of affection and care. The feline was malnourished and covered in grime, but she was grateful to be in a warm and safe environment. Ember, as they named her, relished the attention from everyone and yearned for more cuddles and pets. The firefighters later brought her to the veterinarian where she received treatment for frostbite on her ear tips. Overall, the kitten was in good health.
As she was very affectionate and endearing, everyone assumed that she had gone astray, prompting them to publish missing pet notices on different social media platforms in an attempt to locate her rightful owner.
After posting on Facebook to find the owner of the cat they rescued, firefighter Toews and his team took her to the vet for vaccinations and treatment for ear mites when no one came forward. Sadly, even after waiting for a long time, no one claimed the adorable feline. However, the firefighters didn’t give up on their furry friend and decided to help her find a loving home. Despite their attachment to her, they only have her best interests at heart and want to ensure she gets the care and love she deserves.
According to the sources, Steinbach lacks a 24/7 fire department, resulting in the station being unoccupied for days at times. On a positive note, the dog mentioned in the previous context has now recuperated and is flourishing in her new forever home, exhibiting her friendly and lively character.
Ember is all set for the next phase of her journey. She’s bound to be an amazing companion, always there to shower you with love and snuggles.
