A cat seeking refuge from a raging Northern California wildfire found a fine-feathered friend as he awaited rescue from the heat and flames.

The Grass Valley Fire Department said Thursday a cat and chicken it rescued this week are recovering from burns with the help of the SPCA.

The buddies were found huddled together on the front porch of a home in Redding during a firefighters’ patrol through a fire-damaged neighborhood.

The unlikely duo made it to safety riding in the same crate.

They are expected to fully recover from their minor burn wounds while in the care of the SPCA.
