Amidst the chaos of a mega-earthquake that shook Turkey and Syria, a viral video emerged that captured the hearts of millions around the world. In the midst of the devastation, a Turkish firefighter named Ali Cakas emerged from the rubble carrying a scared black and white cat in his arms. The video quickly went viral, and people were touched by the firefighter’s efforts to save not just human lives but animal lives too.
Cakas and his team named the cat Enkaz, meaning “debris” in Turkish, but they wanted to raise him as a symbol of hope amidst the grief and destruction. Unfortunately, it was soon discovered that Enkaz’s previous owner had perished in the earthquake, leaving the cat without a home. Cakas decided to take Enkaz with him and give him a new home.
Enkaz quickly adjusted to his new life with Cakas and is now enjoying a warm place to sleep and full meals to eat. Cakas even made an Instagram account for Enkaz to keep people updated on his progress and thank those who have followed his story.
The earthquake left 1.5 million people homeless, and survivors struggled to find shelter and sanitation. The Turkish government is now cracking down on construction malpractices that exacerbated the situation, but discontent has become widespread in the country, with people calling for the government’s resignation.
In the face of adversity, the best of humanity shines bright. Cakas and his team are a testament to this, as they worked tirelessly to save human and animal lives. Enkaz’s story is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is hope, and we can make a difference in the lives of others.
