A cat was rescued from an apartment fire in a complex in Hazel Dell, Washington (a suburb of Vancouver). As of last Wednesday, it was being taken care of at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington. The cat was being treated for smoke inhalation and burns.
The cat required an oxygen mask and, to encourage new skin growth, the singed fur and skin was removed on the cat's face and paws. The cat is expected to recover fully in 2-3 weeks.
The cat has not yet been claimed by an owner therefore after he recovers fully, he will be given up for adoption, says Erin Griffin of the Humane Society.
