Rescue Cat Saves Familys Home From Massive Fire
Tilly, a tabby, alerted her owner Matt Clayton to a fire in the roof of the family home in Melbourne, Australia. Three weeks ago Matt and his family went to rescue an animal from a shelter. As he was leaving for work later than usual, Tilly refused to move out of his way. At Tilly's insistence, Matt gently touched a down-light and smoke came billowing out. Firefighters who attended the scene were in disbelief a cat could have such an amazing sense of intuition and praised Tilly for her work. "If Tilly wasn't there, it would have been a catastrophe for sure," local fire chief Ken Campbell told 7News. Matt is still in disbelief his furry sidekick turned out to be man's best friend and very happy he didn't get a dog. "I never thought the cat would save the house. Crikey!" Matt said to 7News.
