Mews and Nips: Cat Saves Woman’s Life by Tapping on Neighbor’s Window

hero cat

Slinky Malinki, a two-year-old cat from Cornholme, Lancashire, saved his  human’s life by tapping on the neighbors’ window to get their attention. Slinky’s human had collapsed in her home. “”He saved my life,” Janet Rowlison told the Daily Mirror. “I was drifting in and out of consciousness for five days.” Slinky tried to get the neighbor’s attention by sitting on the fence, tormenting their dog, and eventually, tapping on the window. Read the full story on The Daily Mirror.

    I have a similar story that my Tomcat went an got my neighbor next door when I passed out due to dehydration with a stomach bug. He went to here screen door and clawed at it till she got up and came to find me on the floor. She took me to the E.R. I owe my life to my Cats. Who knows were I would be today if it was for them. I feel totally blessed
