Vanessa Merke, from the Dauphin Veterinary Clinic, spoke to The Dodo by phone and was happy to report that the survivor cat was actually doing just fine.
"He only had singed hair and some smoke inhalation. He wasn't badly hurt. He's been looked after and is doing really good," she says. "Watching the video, I think he was lucky get out alive. He's a very lucky cat."
Merke says the cat has since been reunited with his owner.
