If for whatever reason you needed an adorable human interest story today, Reykjavík’s firefighters have one for you.

“Some dispatches are more fun than others,” Capital Area Firefighters posted on Facebook today. The reason for their jubilation: they were called out to rescue a cat that was stuck in the eaves under a roof.

As the photos attest, this was a pretty straight-forward operation. Nonetheless, cat owner Hugi Þórðarsson was visibly relieved to have the cat back safe and sound.

In the comments under the post, Hugi thanks the firefighters, writing, “Heartfelt thanks for your agility and professionalism in a quick and proper response.” Accompanying the post is a photo of the cat in question with her new toy: a fire truck.
