When a fire destroyed one Michigan family’s home, firefighters worked tirelessly to get everyone out alive, including the family’s beloved dog and cat.
A fireman managed to find the family’s dog, Chloe, and used an improvised oxygen mask to revive her. Tragically, however, the crews never managed to find their cat named Ringer and the Marr family assumed he was either killed or ran away. “Looking for that cat, we picked up furniture, looked around beds, looked in every nook and cranny for that cat,” said Chief Ronald Wise of the South Haven Area Emergency Services.
It’s been two months since the fire destroyed the home, but when Christine Marr visited the house recently, she decided to take along Chloe for the first time. Within minutes of being back inside the house, Chloe was sniffing at a particular hole in the floor and when Marr looked inside, she was stunned to see Ringer staring back at her.
“This cat’s a miracle. This cat has been in this area for two months with no food or water. And Chloe just found him down in this hole,” said Marr. “To know that Chloe had found the cat, that’s amazing. She’s a true hero, she is. To get that cat, you wouldn’t think the cat would live that much longer,” said Wise.
Ringer had no access to regular food or water for two months so lost half his body weight and is malnourished, but his vet expects him to make a full recovery within a few weeks. “We’re assuming he was eating bugs and spiders and stuff under there,” said Marr. “I think he used a bit more than just nine lives.”
