Firefighters + Kittens : A Pawsitively Purrfect Combo

Hot Australian Firefighters. Kittens. Need we say more? Okay, how about donations to worthy charities and a whole calendar full of swoon-worthy first responders and adorable felines??


The Australian Firefighters Calendar has been in existence since 1993, with over $2.8 MILLION dollars going to charity. They’ve posed with baby animals over the years, yet it was their post with kittens last year that went viral (we could have told them that would be a slam dunk!). For their 2019 calendars they also posed with puppies, horses, a wombat, and a couple of ring tailed lemurs, but you know where our hearts belong! Available right meow, you can pick up the calendar on their site, just in time for the PAWLIDAYS. CatCon got an advanced preview of their wonderful portraits – take a look!

Following 26 years of global success, the team behind the calendar have extended their search globally, looking for firefighters from a variety of different countries for their first international edition, slated to debut in 2020, with proceeds going to charities around the globe.

So let’s review: Heroic first-responders, adorable animals, a world of worthy charities. Is it getting hot in here, or is it just us?
