A cat resuscitated by a Seattle firefighter last month was one of 69 cats and kittens that found loving homes over the weekend at Kitty Harbor's special President's Day adoption event.  

Teri Ensley’s home was damaged in the Jan. 9 fire. Teri was "foster mom" to Jared and several other cats. One of them died.

Delyn Hoptowit Kosbab, owner and founder of Kitty Harbor, said Jared was near death when he was found.

She says during the fire, Jared made his way into the bathroom, got into the bathtub, and put his face down into the drain to get fresh air. That's where the firefighter found him. The firefighter used a special mask to give oxygen to him.

Delyn says Jared is doing well and is ready to find his perfect home.  Because he gets overly excited from attention or too much activity, he needs a home with older children or no children.

Eleven of the 70+ cats removed from a camper in Auburn also found homes at the adoption event..

Kitty Harbor is located 3422 Harbor Ave. SW. Click for more information.
