Firefighters, medics, EMTs, and staff at a San Francisco fire station are trying everything they can to keep their pet cat, Edna, after management has apparently asked them to get rid of the feline.
Employees at Station 49 on Evans Avenue in Bayshore said in an email that an anonymous complaint was lodged with the city over the presence of Edna. They were told to “get rid of the cat” last week, according to the email, and were given a Monday deadline before animal control was called.
Edna became a part of station life four years ago, when she first began visiting Station 49 as a feral cat. From there, the email went on to explain, she grew to become a part of their group.
“We slowly started to show her love and care, and she [became] our family,” the email reads. “Now she is always there, and is the most docile, loving baby. Signed “Edna the Cat”
