Memow is recovering at Ballard Animal Hospital after barely escaping from a devastating fire that destroyed his home. Memow shared an RV with a young female cat, a young dog, and his two humans. In the early morning hours of Feb. 24, a fire broke out in his RV which was parked in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Fortunately, both humans escaped with minor burn injuries as well as the dog. Memow escaped, but was badly burned on his face and all of his feet. ( Video of the fire shows the cat running from the RV) Sadly, it is unknown if the female cat escaped or perished in the fire. As of today, she has not been seen.
Memow's road to recovery began the next morning when a good Samaritan spotted him in the road. The man noticed a mob of crows dive bombing the cat and realized he was injured. He quickly made it to nearby Ballard Animal Hospital and alerted staff. A hospital employee found the kitty in the road, crying; he was helpless to defend himself as his eyes were swollen shut from severe burns to his face.
