Sometimes, you humans do things that make we want to swat you. Edna, a four year old tortie, arrived at San Francisco Fire Station 49 as a kitten. The firefighters at the station loved her, and they enjoyed having her around. She enjoyed spending time with them. And for four years, both Edna and all of the humans at the station enjoyed the arrangement.
But recently, a human who deserves many swats reported Edna to the San Francisco Fire Department. And the foolish humans in charge of the department decided that Edna had to leave.
Many people learned about Edna’s plight, and they responded with anger. One commenter said they were “very sorry to hear someone has screwed it up for Edna and those who cared for her.” They added “what the heck is wrong with that person and don’t they have anything better to do?”
The department said they could not have Edna around medical supplies due to the risk of contamination. But this does not make sense, furiends. These supplies are in boxes, and they are sealed in individual packages. Edna would not contaminate the supplies! And she likely kept mice and other rodents away from the station.
Fortunately for Edna, one of the humans at the fire station is taking her home temporarily. But she deserves to go back to her home at the station. I hope that happens soon.
