    Default Mouth to Meow-th: Firefighter revives cat

    NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -- A lucky cat owes one of its nine lives to a firefighter who revived it with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

    Al Machado rescued the cat from a burning apartment Tuesday, telling The Standard Times of New Bedford that he saw immediately that it needed air. Machado began performing mouth to mouth on the animal as he carried it outside.





    Video shot at the scene shows Machado bent over, breathing into the cat's mouth several times. The cat, a tiger angora, was revived and resting comfortably soon after.

    No humans were injured in the fire. A man and woman whose last known address was the building that burned were arrested and charged with arson, authorities said.

    Two other cats died in the second-floor apartment, but two dogs there were saved with the help of oxygen from paramedics and animal rescue personnel. Pets on the other two floors -- including a ferret and even some frogs on the first floor -- were all saved.


    Asked what it tasted like to give mouth-to-mouth to a cat, Machado laughed, grimaced and said: "Like fur."

    What a great story.

    OK I'll admit something - I would be less squeamish about giving mouth to mouth to a dog or a cat than I would be for a strange person.

    It's kind of like when I find a hair in my food - if it's human, I want to puke, if it's a dog or cat hair, I don't like it but I don't have that same grossed-out reaction.

    Yeah but that's usually after the genitalia has been cleaned, not for the purpose of cleaning it!
