We were saved from smoke from a huge fire by a cat that was mute until he decided to get vocal to save us. I was saved from a fire by cat that acted like Lassie until I decided to listen to her. Make no mistake your cat will save you just as well as a dog will save you.

Cats will save their human companions and families just as dogs will do! There is no difference. I saw a cat jump in front of a highly venomous snake to take the bite for this owner on a news programs recently- they have a depths of emotions equivalent to a dog or even another human companion! Every cat I've ever had, showed concern when I was sick and showed a protective instinct to keep me safe when he thought I was in danger. Cats are also man's best friend! Thanks for this story Barb.

This goes to show that, far from being aloof and indifferent, cats really do care about us - and can be downright heroic!
