The house is burning, the cat saves family

NB – Google translate – Austrian family whose house was going on in the night flames was saved by her pussy, that woke his masters and allowed them to escape the fire.

That’s hero Cat – “Molly” in the pic.

    So how much tuna can Molly eat for the rest of her life?

    • I hope lots.

        Er, tuna is bad for cats. Mercury and all that.
        Don’t give them aspirin either. 😉

    Don’t be fooled, it is only enlightened self interest.
    some years ago my wife turned in and forgot to turn off the eggs she was hardboiling.
    Moggus Horribilus woke us up about a few hours later by ramming his claws into my wife’s foot..the house was full of evil smelling smoke and we rushed to find out what was burning. The eggs had charred and created the worst sulpherous smoke you could imagine .
    We celebrated the cat ,told him he saved the house ,told him he was a wonderfull animal despite his usual sullen demeanor.
    the cat promptly asked for an extra late night dinner which was the subtext all along.

  • Had a black cat like that once, on Vancouver Island. We called it Nootka, because it came to us out of the woods.

      Black cats are special in my books, but then I havw learned to like cats just as I do dogs thanks to a special one who is waiting for me on the other side.

    I’ve been woken up by pussy a few times in my life. Not nearly enough however.

    Some good news for the new year. God bless Molly and her family.

  • I’ve heard more than one story of cats doing things like this.
