In exchange for the noms and care you humans give us, we felines give you many things. We love to shower our humans with affection, and you humans enjoy this. Sometimes, our actions can save your lives, though. And that is what happened with a feline in Clairmont, Alberta.
The humans called firefighters, who were able to rescue the second feline in the home. The feline who needed to be saved got scared in all of the confusion. Firefighters searched for this cat and brought it to safety.
One of the firefighters said the family “was pretty happy with their cat. The cat work them up with enough time. If they hadn’t been notified, it could have definitely been a different result.”
Firefighters were able to put the fire out, and everyone in the home is safe. All of the residents — both human and feline — found temporary housing. They will stay there until the cause of the fire is determined and repairs are completed.
I am very happy to hear that one of my felines was a hero who saved this family’s life. Some humans will say that the feline was only trying to preserve its noms supplier and didn’t want to lose one of its nine lives. But that is not true. We felines love the humans we live with and do not want to see them hurt.
You will not be able to convince the family of this hero cat otherwise!
This human was relaxing in his home, not too worried about the fires. He did not think that the flames would get to his home. And he figured that if the fires became a threat, he would get an alert on his cell phone.
That alert never came, but he got a feline one. Tiger started to pace back and forth in front of the door. He also took a look outside the windows to see what was happening. And his human knew something was going on.
“I figured I might as well take out the trash and take a look to see if an animal like a raccoon was making Tiger nervous. When I got across the lot, I could see the flames all over the mountains across from my condo,” said Tiger’s human.
Once Tiger’s human saw this, he immediately knew why Tiger was so nervous. He also knew that he needed to take action immediately. He ran back inside, packed some clean clothes and his medicine. Then he and Tiger evacuated his home.
Tiger and his human endured a four hour wait to get to a safe place. Fortunately for this feline and his human, their home survived intact. But his human thinks the world of Tiger and is glad his feline gave him a warning, saying “he’s a pretty great cat.”
Now you might think that Tiger would get a new toy as a reward for being such a heroic feline. Tiger did not, but not because his human does not love him. “He really doesn’t care about toys,” said Tiger’s human about him. “He never gets bored because he’s so curious about everything around him.”
We felines benefit, too. It is always good to have a human who cares for us and makes sure that we are happy and healthy. And being inside with a human to care for us helps extend our lives.
This symbiotic relationship went way beyond the normal for some humans who lived with a tortie in the United Kingdom, however. You see, these humans were sound asleep when a fire broke out in their home. They had no idea that the home was going to burn down and that they would die in the flames.
Tink is a hero and her humans owe their lives to her. I am very happy that Tink’s heroics did not result in her leaving us. And I am glad there are heroic cats like her helping their humans!
I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
