(RNN) - The perception of firefighters over the last decade has gone from cliche to epic - from pulling cats out of trees to becoming unofficial ambassadors for the entire country.

One man's giant actions for a small creature only boosted respect for the profession.

"Firefighter Kalanick," as he is known on YouTube, did something most other people consider above and beyond by reviving a kitten during a house fire.

Government at its finest. Thanks, Ted Cruz.
