My Aurora is a hero

So this morning I was cooking my breakfast and stepped out of the room for just a second, but got side tracked with something else and completely forgot about it.

Aurora started acting crazy and was actually screaming. I thought she hurt herself and when she ran to the kitchen I saw the smoke from my burnt breakfast. I donít know what would have happened if she hadnít got my attention, because I was really involved with something else.

Iíve heard of dogs doing this and never a cat. I looked at the dogs who were nearby and they just acted like that was my problem and not to bother them. Aurora just causally went up stairs after I put the fire out.

Definitely a "keeper". Your insurance company should give you a discount for having her guarding the property!

Amazing cat, my cats wouldn't give a hoot. However my dog is quite something. When we lived at the old apartment she started acting crazy one night whining and kept getting me and my bf to go to the door, we thought she wanted out or something so we left and she ran to the elevator jumping on the door barking and whining. All of a sudden we heard frantic screams. Turns out people were stuck in there... she must have heard it from inside the apartment.

Wow, that's a nice story. I love stories like that.
I sometimes watch the Alaska State Troopers on National Geographic Channel and I once saw an episode where a German Sheppard ran to meet troopers in the woods to guide them to a house fire. The story stuck in my mind and I think of it often

It would be fun to know what she was actually screaming. Were your ears burning? One day, maybe, science will have a method of translating animal language.

Good work Aurora!

Oh, I know she was she was upset, and it probably was good that I couldnít understand. And I just knew she meant every word of it by the way she turned away with her tail up in the air and strutting off after I turned off the gas.
