The Book of Heroic Failures contains a story
about the 1978 strike of British firefighters, when
the army filled the gap for the missing firemen.
One afternoon the replacement firefighters got
a call to rescue a cat caught high in a tree. The
soldiers rushed to the scene, put up a ladder, brought
down the cat, and gave it back to the owner. The
woman was grateful and invited them in for tea.
After a wonderful time, they said goodbye, got in
the truck, and backed away-over the cat.
