MIDTOWN, Manhattan — Turner, a beloved firehouse cat who lives at a Midtown FDNY station, is missing and New York’s Bravest need your help finding him.
“Hasn’t been a dull moment in 5 weeks with Turner!” firefighters said in an Instagram post Friday, announcing he was missing.
Firecat Turner was last seen outside his home, FDNY’s Engine 1/Ladder 24 firehouse, located at 142 W. 31st St.
The gray and white kitten has a collar and a tag that says “heff,” as well as the firehouse’s address and phone number.
Turner’s life as a firehouse cat has been documented on the Instagram account @turnoutturnerfdny, with pictures (embedded below) showing him cuddling, playing “catsketball,” “meowpervising” and getting to know his unique surroundings.
The curious feline joined the Midtown station more than a year after its previous cat, Firecat Boogie, died in February 2016. Boogie’s journey was followed by nearly 20,000 followers on the same Instagram account.
Anyone who spots Turner is asked to return him to the firehouse or call 347-543-3599.
