    Default Cat wakes from nap to save family!

    Cat wakes from nap to save family - Unusual Tales - Specials - smh.com.au



    Winnie saved the Keesling family from almost certain death.

    A cat helped spare a family in the US state of Indiana from death by carbon monoxide poisoning by jumping on the bed and meowing wildly as fumes filled the home, the owners said.

    Eric and Cathy Keesling said their 14-year-old cat, Winnie, played a crucial role in saving their lives on March 24 after a petrol-powered water pump in their basement caused the odourless, but deadly, gas to build up.

    About 1am, the domestic shorthair began nudging Cathy's ear and meowing loudly.

    "It was a crazy meow, almost like she was screaming," said Cathy, who hesitated to get up until Winnie's wailing and jumping persisted.

    When she finally climbed from bed, she realised she was nauseous and dizzy and couldn't awaken her husband. Because he had undergone minor neck surgery the previous day, she decided to call 911, but was so disoriented she had trouble dialling.

    Paramedics found the couple's 14-year-old son, Michael, unconscious on the floor near his bedroom.

    The Keeslings were taken from the home in oxygen masks, treated for carbon monoxide poisoning and soon recovered.

    Cathy Keesling said Winnie acted similarly last summer when tornadoes tore through the area, 72 kilometres east of Indianapolis.

    "I really believe cats can sense these kind of things," she said.

    I would be incredibly impressed if that cat dragged them all to safety. Hungry, hungry hippos indeed.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.
