GLENDALE — Two cats rescued by authorities from a house fire in Queens last week are in good health and have been reunited with their owner, officials at a BluePearl Veterinary hospital said.

The cats, Kit Kat and Jinx, were discharged from the hospital after being treated for severe smoke inhalation from a two-story fire in Glendale

Firefighters were able to resuscitate the cats with small breathing units on the sidewalk after they passed out from smoke. The cats were both put in a special oxygen chamber after they were rushed to the veterinary hospital.
