Meet Carlow and Boogie! Bravest Firehouse Cats in Manhattan


Carlow and Boogie are the firecats at two fire stations in New York City. These two rescue cats rule their firehouse roosts in Manhattan. “They also keep the firehouse clear of any critters that crawl through the Big Apple,” said NYC Fire Wire.

From Carlow’s Facebook page: “My name is Carlow. I live in a firehouse in Yorkville Manhattan. Named after the local pub. I’m really a firehouse dog trapped in a cats body.”

“A puppy and kitten that age are much, much too young to be in an animal shelter,” said Buxton. “Without a foster home, they wouldn’t have had a chance.”

These Rescue Kitties Haven’t Stopped Holding Paws and Snuggling Since They Met


Since they brought their rescue cat a new friend, these two kitties have been holding paws and snuggling like two peas in a pod.

“The best thing we’ve ever done for Bean was adopt Sydney,” reddit user Fox_ears wrote. “The tuxedo is Bean and the tabby is Sydney.”

“We found Bean as a stray 2 years ago and have had him as an only cat up until I found Sydney while volunteering with an animal shelter. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. I brought her home the next day thinking Bean would make a fuss but they were friends from the moment they met. He’s much more active now and seems much happier. They cuddle and play all day.”

Bean and Sydney have been best friends since the moment they met.

Sam was found as a stray curling up in a ditch near a house. He willingly gave himself up to Amanda Collado who rescued him. “…because he was just so tired of being outside that he didn’t fight her. She went to pick him up, he’s kinda like ‘save me!” said Nette Rodriguez.
