It's a common trope for a firefighter to rescue a cat. Usually in that kind of story, though, the hero does his job, returns the cat, and continues on with his work. However, during an incident during the Paradise fire, this was not possible, mostly because of how obsessed the feline is with the firefighter.

In the aftermath of the fire in Paradise, CA, firefighter Ryan Coleman with Fairview Valley Fire Inc. was going through the debris, when he came across a very fluffy and scared cat. The feline took to the fireman immediately and climbed on his shoulder.

Can you blame her?

He took some photos and video and posted about the encounter on Facebook.





From there it spread across the internet.

The Camp Fire in northern California has been on a warpath, taking people's homes and lives in its wake. It's the most destructive wildfire in the state's history. The rain, anticipated to arrive soon, should help the firefighters contain the flames.

While Coleman has not spoken on whether he will keep the cat, I think we are all grateful (cats included!) for the emergency response working on this disaster.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
