Two men dressed as Batman and Captain America saved a cat from a burning house in West Virginia last Saturday.

John Buckland and Troy Marcum were working at a children’s event where they teach kids positive values when they saw smoke engulfing a home.

In true superhero fashion, they sprang into action, rushing towards the burning house to see if anyone was inside, and that’s when they found a cat whose owners were not at home at the time.

“I grabbed his shoulders, gave it everything we got and the door opened,” Buckland told WCHS.

Buckland, a former firefighter and Iraq veteran, said his training kicked in. “He (Captain America) breaks out the window. The smoke lets out and as I can start to see I reach down and grab something furry.” He got the kitty out to safety.

The cat appeared to be unconscious, so they began rescue efforts on the cat.

“He got resuscitated by Batman. That’s a pretty scary thing to wake up to,” Buckland joked.

Buckland said not to let the costume fool you, he’s no hero. “I just wonder what the cat was thinking. I’m glad no one was inside.”

Rufio is a little tuxedo rescue with a bat-stache on his face. The little guy came from a feral cat mama that didn’t survive the dangerous outdoors. Luckily he and his siblings were given a second chance. “His feral mom disappeared when he was only about five weeks old, leaving him and his litter mates beneath a porch high in the Colorado Rockies,” said Kaelizilla who adopted Rufio from a woman that saved the kitties.

“They all found wonderful homes…. Rufio was actually one of only two babies left ‘unclaimed’ by the time I responded to the woman’s ad. Originally, I had wanted his sibling, an all-black baby boy, but after she described Rufio to me, I changed my mind. By the time we had scheduled our meet-up, the last baby had a home, too…. Although his mum had likely started to wean him, he was so young that I had to bottle feed him in the beginning, while introducing him to wet food. I believe this is why he’s such a hyper-affectionate cat, now,” she added.
