A fearless feline
A family in Canada was sleeping, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Well, maybe that last part wasn’t true. The family cat was awake, and it just saved the whole family from a terrible fate.
When it comes to family pets, you’d expect dogs to be the ones in the news for saving the day. This time it was the opposite, as a little cat managed to save an entire family from their burning home in the middle of the night.
The Family Pet
Sometimes having a family pet pays off. If a dog is man’s best friend, what does that make a cat? It was around 3:30 AM on a Thursday morning when everything went down. The parents and their two children were all sound asleep when something terrible was about to happen, and one little hero came in to save the day.
The wife was woken up in the middle of the night to the feeling of something nibbling on her hand. It turned out to be the family cat biting on her to try and wake her up. She woke up to see that her house was smoking and in danger of burning down. The cat may have saved the whole family from certain death.
Making a Difference
Trevor Grant, the Fire Chief of the County of Grande Prairie, said, “It’s pretty interesting to see that it was the cat that did alert them that their was an issue.” Without the little heroic feline, we may have been looking at a completely different story. Maybe you should go out and get yourself a pet cat to protect you in the night!
