Glinda the Cat is Resuscitated by Glendale firefighters and Adopted

A 12-year-old cat that was resuscitated by Glendale firefighters during an apartment fire last month is no longer an orphan. At about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, the cat, Glinda, was adopted from the Pasadena Humane Society. Ricky Whitman, a spokeswoman for the shelter, said she was unsure whether the new owners had read about her plight. Even so, “She’s on her way home,” Whitman said.

The owners of the black cat, which was found unconscious during the Feb. 18 blaze at the Fort Dearborn Home complex on West Doran Street, did not come forward to claim her, despite, according to fire officials, being contacted.

We’re just happy that Glinda has now found a new home and can be “highly socialized,” as she’s been called, again.   While this story has a great silver lining we can’t help wonder what kind of owners would simply leave their cat and not claim her.  This makes no sense.  Nevertheless, yet another case of great deeds done by both the firefighters as well as new owners.
