An east China woman’s call to the fire department to help rescue her cat trapped in a basement has amused and infuriated Chinese netizens in equal measure. Firefighters arriving on the scene pulled the cat out and reunited it with its panicked owner.

This is far from the first time that Chinese firefighters have helped free trapped pets. One popular online video shows fire personnel freeing a cat stuck in a water pipe (it runs away like lighting without even a backward glance at its rescuers).

Whether a trained Chinese firefighter should accept such a mundane job can be a tricky question, since the world’s most populous nation has limited emergency services resources.
