CLERMONT, Fla. (FOX 35 OLANDO) - The Orlando Cat Café has donated two pet oxygen mask kits to Lake County Fire Rescue, in recognition of National Pet Fire Safety Day, which is July 15. Just like fire drills, pets need consideration when preparing for unexpected fire emergencies.

The Cat Café is located at 532 Cagan Park Ave., Clermont, Florida -- in the Town Center at Cagan Crossings, just about four miles west of Disney's Animal Kingdom.
