We regard our local South Jersey volunteer fire departments as heroes. They are volunteers who literally put their lives on the line for their communities.

The sacrifice in terms of time, money and commitment is unparalleled in our communities.

Through training, these volunteers get pretty good at fighting fires and saving lives.

One local volunteer fire company is also getting very good at saving cats.

Strike that, apparently they are getting pretty good at saving the SAME cat.

Just over a week ago, the Scullville Volunteer Fire Company (with help from the BargaintownFire Company) helped rescue a cat that had been struck in a tree on Leap Street in Egg Harbor Township.

On the Cat Country Morning Show,  EHT resident Melinda joined us to ask for help getting a cat out of one of her trees. The Scullville volunteers responded and got the Cat to safety.

The Leap St. cat was successfully removed from the tree this morning by members of Scullville and Bargaintown Fire Companies. Posted by Scullville Volunteer Fire Co. on Friday, April 9, 2021

Fast forward to Sunday, and the Scullville crew responded to another cat in a tree incident. Firefighters were able to rescue a cat out of a tree on Ruby Drive. Volunteers report is was actually the SAME cat that they pulled out of the Leap Street tree about 9 days earlier! (Ruby Drive is just around the corner from Leap Street.)

What's the saying? Same old cat, different day? Yes, that's the infamous Leap Street cat now on Ruby drive. This morning...

Hopefully, the cat stays grounded, at least for the next few days.

Volunteer Firefighters, we salute you!
