Cat Saves Baby's Life

Anybody read this over the weekend? I found this article on Yahoo! yesterday and thought it worth passing along.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cat saves baby's life Sat Apr 15, 10:27 PM ET

A cat saved the life of a newborn baby abandoned on the doorstep of a Cologne (Germany) house in the middle of the night by meowing loudly until someone woke up, a police spokesman said Saturday.

"The cat is a hero," Cologne police spokesman Uwe Beier said. "Its loud meowing got the attention of the homeowner and saved the baby from suffering life-threatening hypothermia. The homeowner opened door to see why the cat was making so much noise and discovered the newborn."

Beier said the boy was taken to hospital at 5 a.m. on Thursday, when overnight temperatures fell toward zero, and had suffered only mild hypothermia. He said there was no indication of what happened to the boy's mother.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Personally, I think the story is really amazing. I've heard of dogs doing this sort of thing but never have I heard of a cat doing it. I love my cats and all of course but, let's face it, cats just aren't has concerned about others as dogs seem to be.

Oops, Crystal. Sorry 'bout that. I almost never go in the Cat Chat anymore unless I'm having problems with my kitties. I hang out in The Lounge all the time now.
