This Turkish Firefighter Saved A Cat Trapped Under Earthquake Rubble And Now They’re Inseparable

The firefighter, Ali Cakas, adopted the cat he rescued and named him “Enkaz”, after the Turkish word for “rubble”.

After the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria on Feb. 6, a Turkish firefighter saved a cat after being trapped under rubble for 10 days and is now living happily with him.

The firefighter, Ali Cakas, rescued the black and white cat and named him “Enkaz”, after the Turkish word for “rubble”.

A viral video with more than 12.5 million views on Twitter shows Enkaz standing on Cakas’ shoulder after being rescued in Gaziantep, Turkey.

Right now, Enkaz is now living together with Cakas and is apparently refusing to leave his savior’s side  

Photos from social media show Cakas and Enkaz cuddling on a sofa while leading peaceful lives. 

“Enkaz is in good hands. That’s loyalty I guess .. how graceful and well mannered,” Cakas wrote on an Instagram post. 

This event has definitely brought warmth to the people.

The Feb. 6 earthquake was the deadliest earthquake in Turkey’s modern history and struck as Syria continues to face a humanitarian crisis from the ongoing civil war. 

On Feb.20, another 6.4 magnitude quake struck near the Turkish city of Antakya, killing at least six people and injuring 294 others, including 18 who are in critical condition, according to AP.
