Feline lifesaver

Read a story today of an Australian cat who saved its owner's life. The animal scratched his owner's face as he lay asleep, because of smoke in the house. The man awoke, roused the rest of his family who all managed to flee the house without injury. The fire is thought to have been caused by a cigarette in bed.

It reminds me of a cat in South Yorkshire who was able to predict its owner's epileptic seizures. The animal would sit bolt upright in front of his owner and stare him intently in the face. The seizure would occur minutes later.

  1. Amazing what animals are capable of. Seems to me the cats are just as loyal as the dogs too. Especially in cases such as these.


  2. Wow!  That is incredible; both stories.  Thanks for sharing.

  3. Cats are amazing creatures! Take Nina for example. She knows I should wash the front room curtains so almost every day she manages to unhook them from the rings and I find them on the floor each morning! I bet that man in Australia was glad he had got that cat! Happy new year! Jeannette xx
