SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco fire­fighters are turning to so­cial media to ask for sup­port after they were asked to evict their pet cat from their firehouse.

Employees at Fire Sta­tion 49 in a southern part of the city say they were given a Monday deadline be­fore an­im­al control is called on Edna.

KGO-TV reports the fire­fighters believe an anon­ymous caller com­plained about Edna being around firefighting equipment.

Edna began visiting as a feral kitten and eventually made the station her home.

They say the tor­toise­shell cat relieves stress. Photos on the cat’s Insta­gram account, @fire_cat_edna, show firefighters and staff cuddling and petting the station house kitty.
