Woman Says Cat Saved Her From FireCome over to my house and you'll find that we have little fuzzy smoke alarms everywhere. All of which hate me. I'm not sure why. Other than the fact that I routinely threaten to kill and eat the little bastards, I'm really very kind to them.
NORA SPRINGS, Iowa (AP) -- Linda Froning's cat may have shared one of its nine lives. Froning said she was asleep on a couch last Thursday morning when her cat jumped on her, waking her up to a house full of smoke. (link)
It would be my luck Paula's cats would wake her up when a fire is raging through the house, usher her from the burning building just in the nick of time, and close and lock the door behind her, leaving me to my fate.
You have to see the look in their evil little eyes to understand.
Update: Paula emailed me (I'm in Charleston) to advise that she has eleven cats; not ten. I forgot Chino. I'm sorry for the error. And even sorrier about the extra cat.
