QUEENS — Police officers and firefighters responding to a fire in Glendale gave CPR to a cat rescued from a burning house Sunday.
The 104th Precinct tweeted pictures of emergency crews administering oxygen to the black and white feline.
The 1-year-old male cat, named Kit Kat, is currently being treated in a special oxygen chamber, according to Paul Miranda, the practice manager at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Forest Hills, where the pet was taken.
"There are neurological deficits so we are closely monitoring Kit Kat," Miranda said.
Another cat, Jinx, which was also rescued from the fire, "is much more stable and is breathing OK," Miranda said.
A third cat found at the burning house did not make it, according to the clinic.
BluePearl Veterinary Partners is currently working with Frankie's Friends, a nonprofit focused on saving pets, to raise funds to help the owners with their medical bills.
The fire erupted on the first floor of a 2-story residential building on 88th Street, near Union Turnpike, roughly 10:30 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.
It took 60 firefighters about half and hour to bring the flames under control, according to fire officials.
One person suffered minor injuries but refused medical attention, the spokesman said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
