Pussy saves broad!

A kitty crusader saves a life

Published October 28, 2005 7:14PM (EDT)

In a remarkable twist, female cat owner Linda Froning did not die alone in her apartment last Thursday. In fact, her feline companion -- whose name was not revealed in this AP story -- saved her life by waking her from a nap on the couch as her apartment filled with smoke. After the feline alarm, Froning called her firefighter son, who told the AP that soon after he arrived on the scene, the couch on which his mother had been sleeping "burst into flames." We should all have such a sensitive pussy!
