Firefighters in Indianapolis, Indiana rescued a 15 year old cat named Sissy Mouse when her family’s home burned last Friday night.

IFD firefighters say Sissy Mouse was limp and barely breathing when they found her, overcome from smoke inhalation.

Crew members from the IFD, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services worked together to resuscitate Sissy Mouse with a Project Breathe pet oxygen mask. She was conscious and revived after about 15 minutes.

Sissy’s family was displaced from their heavily damaged home on the city’s south side. The five human members got out of the house in time to avoid injury when the smoke detectors raised the alarm. Two daughters, aged 19 and 20 years old, shared a bedroom, and one of the girls said she woke up because her forehead felt very hot.

A second cat was said to be outside at the time of the fire.
