Firefighters May Have to Surrender Rescued Cat

The firefighters of Station 49 in San Francisco may have to surrender their beloved firehouse cat, Edna. An anonymous complaint was lodged against Edna the Firehouse Cat citing concerns over her being near the fire equipment.

Firefighters rescued Edna four years ago when she was just a kitten. While many of the firefighters say that hanging out with Edna gives them stress relief, Edna is also a working cat. She helps keep mice out of the station.

Want to help Edna?

Those in the department have been asking the public for their help, by emailing [email protected] to fight for Edna to stay.

    Seems like drastic action for one anonymous complaint.

      I know. It kind of makes me wonder if it’s a fellow firefighter (complete speculation on my part) that maybe doesn’t like cats or has an allergy? Otherwise, I can’t understand why anyone would mind. I hope the cat gets to stay and that it’s a safe environment for Edna.

    Having a cat benefits in many areas. 1) Mice, rats and other rodents. 2) Calming factors for the fire fighters. 3) Saving of the cat in question. 4) This cat has been there since kittenhood and should not go through the upheaval of rehoming! Thank you

    What harm can a cat do around fire fighting equipment?!

    Don’t understand why after 4 years of having her. That they would have to give her up. Please think of her well being and morals.

    Knowing how cats have been great for my daughters with their depression and stress levels- both teachers- I know that having that purring fur bundle can do a lot for helping people relax. Edna is saving them, and they saved Edna- it’s simple. They need each other.

      Well said! Sadly she was evicted, but I heard that she went home with one of the EMS personnel… so at least she is still with someone familiar. But very sad that this happened at all.

    I worked in an office where a neighborhood cat would come in and spend the day with me, go on errands, then I’d drive him home at the end of the day. I was the only one working on that first floor, everyone else was on the 2nd & 3rd floors. When Harry would visit he would lay on my desk, not bothering to go to the other floors. One of the ladies upstairs complained about him because she was afraid of cats. She had no interaction with Harry whatsoever but because she complained Harry was no longer allowed to come in. My heart broke. He was such good company since I was by myself and a great stress reliever. So I understand what is happening. The person who complained should come forward and the matter be discussed with all those involved. Edna is an asset to the firehouse and also emotional support for those men & women who are risking their lives to save our own lives as well as our homes and businesses.

      Thanks so much for sharing that experience. How wonderful that you had the company of the neighborhood cat! Did you end up adopting Harry?
