Generally the perfect of intentions go awry. Such was the case of a person who was making an attempt to be useful by rescuing a cat caught in a tree and wound up needing the hearth division’s help himself.
The Norfolk Hearth Division responded to the decision and had been in a position to retrieve the person. Although not one thing they usually do, as they had been equipped, anyway, they went forward and introduced down the puss, too.
“They had been very blissful, very relieved, very grateful,” Norfolk Hearth-Rescue Battalion Chief Harry Worley informed the Virginia Pilot. “They went round and thanked everybody. … From what I may inform (the person who was rescued) was relieved to be again on the bottom.”
In keeping with the newspaper, following the incident, neither the cat nor the person had been out there for remark.
