The war raging in Ukraine is a disgrace. It has displaced millions of citizens and killed thousands, and that’s without counting all the dead pets. Many have lost their owners and are shocked from all the firing, but there are still good people willing to risk their lives to save the poor animals in war-torn Ukraine.
A recent story about Ukrainian firefighters saving a cat from a soon-to-crumble building has warmed our hearts. Everything was caught on video, showing the selfless firefighters saving the poor cat high up from the building’s 7th floor.
The news was shared online by Ukraine’s State Emergency Service. The cat was trapped on the 7th floor in a high-rise building in the district of Borodianka near Kyiv. It was destroyed by Russian bombs, trapping the poor cat there for two months!
It would surely have died there if the firefighters didn’t come to the rescue. They came with a ladder truck and climbed up to safely take the cat to the ground. It was given food and water which it appreciated a lot – who knows how long the poor soul hasn’t eaten?
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
