Brickbat: A Cat House No More


Sad kitty
Andrei Stancu /

Following a complaint, the San Francisco Fire Department has forced EMTs to remove a cat they adopted five years ago from Station 49. Officials said the cat had to go because the station is an ambulance deployment facility, and having the cat there posed "public health and safety concerns." But those who work at the station said the cat was not able to get into the clean room, and medical supplies are boxed up anyway.
