Since those infernal <a href="https://rumble.com/v3f5o3-raging-wildfires-menace-california.html" target="_blank">wildfires</a> hit the northern part of the state of California, people lost so much, not just material things, but also a lot of item with heaps of sentimental value. A lot of those people lost loved ones, some of whom even lost their animal companions, unable to flee the area with them.

When deputies from the Sonoma Sheriff’s office went on patrol in the badly-damaged neighborhood of Fountaingrove in the North Bay, they happened upon one local that hadn’t been able to flee. A cat that managed to run away from the flames hid itself under a car and was meowing for help.

They learned that the cat’s name is Milo, who was unfortunate to get too close to the blazing tongues and got hit paws burned. The deputies noticed they were bleeding.

After the officers were able to <a href="https://rumble.com/v3iu9l-chicago-firefighters-rescue-stuck-cat.html" target="_blank">rescue the cat</a> from under the vehicle, they put a leash on it and were able to find Milo’s owner, Ed Ratliff, after a video of the cat’s rescue went viral on social media.

Ratliff told reporters that he lost everything in the fire, but learning that his pet is alive and safe provided him with a spark of hope. Mile was dehydrated, but is doing well.
