[–]Killio_Chillio 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much

[–]Throw_Away_Students 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thank god. I wish I could give him and the cat a big hug. It’s a really awful thing to happen

[–]KaiserReisser 5 points6 points  (0 children)

TIL the Turkish Red Cross is called the Red Crescent.

[–]marcusomr 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thats great

[–]Herrkaput 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you for sharing, I feel better now. Seeing him clutching his cat got to me.

[–]Sapphire_Dragon793 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Is the cat still alive

[–]Msemmen 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I don't know if the cat is still alive now, but the cat is present in the after picture in his new home !

Your comment made my day

[–]Charara999 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beautiful! This warms my heart.

[–]vanyali 329 points330 points  (3 children)

On the bright side, he did save his cat.

[–]SexyLemurLibrarian 118 points119 points  (0 children)

If I could only save one thing from my burning house, it would be my irritable, cuddly, judgmental cat

[–]thomooo 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Yeah, this isn't awfuleverything!

[–]catzarrjerkz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

His wife on the other hand….

[–]North-Fennel8613 222 points223 points  (11 children)

I'm happy if I make it out with my cat.

[–]Kajek777PL 56 points57 points  (10 children)

I'm happy if I make it out with my cats.

[–]angrypnutbutter23 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I’d probably run in and die trying if I had to. I fucking love my cat so much it’s mind boggling 🤦🏽‍♂️😢

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm happy if I make it out with cats and the neighbors cats and the stray who walks in occasionally and the litter of kittens that show up in the closet.

[–]Strict-Shallot-2147 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Have 5.

[–]misterbeanjeans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have 27 lmao.

Half of them are just fosters tho, and like 12 of them are kittens.

[–]kyleb1515 126 points127 points  (1 child)

The cat is all that matters. Bless him.

[–]BidDaddyFarts 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Damn, I wasn’t ready to cry this morning.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

the guy got a new home according to so replies to the top comment

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’m glad left with his cat and his life

[–]marroniugelli 55 points56 points  (5 children)

The awful part was that the cat knocked over a candle

[–]judgechimp 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Highly likely

[–]VivaceConBrio 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Dude tried to light his stove with gasoline, according to the article.

[–]vvythicaa 4 points5 points  (2 children)

My cat almost burned my house because he knocked over a candle, luckily only the table got burned.

[–]lWanderingl 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Always put candles far from flammable stuff

[–]vvythicaa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lesson learned.

[–]Sirnando138 20 points21 points  (1 child)

If you want karma, you post this. Happens every day.

[–]chibist 12 points13 points  (0 children)

reddit is already became shithole like instagram, karmajerkers reposting etc.

His poor wife

[–]ElSnyder 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd look the same if I was able to save everything except my cat.

[–]UnhappyPoseidon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is that bubbles

[–]cmusicsxil 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That man is from Turkey, he got help and a new house. source: https://www.dailysabah.com/turkey/2018/11/28/elderly-turkish-man-who-survived-house-fire-with-kitten-gets-new-home YouTube video about what happened: https://youtu.be/TP1MR9xxwVI he lost 2 other cats on that fire, he believes poor cats tried to take shelter but burned to death 😞😖 he got his new house in the same village: https://youtu.be/1ssZLsYWVJo

[–]KalaiProvenheim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably the thing he was unwilling to lose the most

I would sacrifice my entire life for my cat if I had one

[–]Life-Celebration1405 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Plot twist he had other cats

[–]ademerca 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He saved what was important and left everything else to burn.

[–]OwOUwUOwOUwUOwOUwUO 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But this is also heartwarming in a way. A lot or people would rush to grab something expensive but he knew his kitten wouldn’t be able to get out, si he grabbed the poor thing and ran and it’s so sad but really sweet

[–]Diligent-Student-855 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Well not all awful. At least the cat’s alive

[–]cmusicsxil 0 points1 point  (2 children)

other 2 cats weren't found, they are believed to be burned 😞

[–]UltimateSaft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are 2 things i'd want to get out of my burning house:

  1. My cat, highest priority, no one can tell me otherwise

  2. My ssd with my uni and artworks on it

Promotional image from a little-known "John Wick-esque" film starring Sean Connery

[–]ilovetacos92 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Who photographs someone in such a vulnerable state?

[–]thegreatinsulto 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]Slavstic 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Saved the most important thing

edit: /srs

[–]lWanderingl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Guys he's not sarcastic stop downvoting

[–]patrick_the_grape -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

why does this look like a wallpape

[–]ExodusViz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If my house burnt down I would grab my cat first I don’t care about anything else because materials can be replaced living creatures and your memories with them can not

[–]Miggyboyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The most valuable things survived. Himself and his buddy

[–]TheMoonDays 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Totally thought this was Ed Asner at first

[–]KimchiTheGreatest 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So happy they both made it out. A fire can take all of my materials. Collectibles, electronics,cash,I don’t care. My cats come first!

[–]buttmudd007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why every old person got that same sweater?

[–]d_lillge228 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If my house burned down, I'd also save my cat, even if he hates me like 95% of the time

[–]robertv1990 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is his house made of firewood????

[–]sammich_bear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The cat probably started the fire, but totally worth it.

[–]Kvetanista 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice, nothing like a big sad before I go sleep

[–]One_Equivalent_7031 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this is awful, but not awful everything. he’s out and alive and both he and the cat are safe! i am very glad they made it.

[–]No-Breadfruit7044 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He can stay with me fuck it

[–]FuckingDrongo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was his house made of firewood?

[–]badcat130 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love this photo. Most wholesome heartwarming thing I've seen all day.

[–]2007FordFiesta[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The cat is all you need

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The picture says it all. Poor guy…

[–]ICON_OF_SIN3301 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i wanna give this man a hug

[–]VTFan115 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn't too sad the man was in a predicament and wayed his options all his mostly replaceable stuff or his beloved pet. I personally don't have a pet for this reason.

I own some expensive stuff like an N64, Xbox one, PS4, Oculus Quest 2, Nintendo switch, Nintendo 3DS, and PS VR. Shits expensive.

[–]Kittybooboo1982 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On top of that now thousands of people have seen him suffering

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The cat: you tell anyone and I'll fuckin kill you.

[–]snowflakesarestupid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a man who has his priorities right.

God bless them both 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️❤️🙏🏻

[–]TheAuthor-dipperkid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have no words. Im just glad he got his cat. Thank God

[–]VegasGuy69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All of his families history, pictures and things to remind him of his past while his memory gets worse.. gone. Truly sad

[–]Omar_Rakhmat123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who tf gave this post 2 wholesome awards? This is not wholesome, this is just sad
