A Clinton woman and her daughter reaped the benefits Tuesday when the cat they adopted from the Humane Society last year woke them in time to be rescued by firefighters from their burning home.
[...]"I told my daughter, 'See, you saved the cat and now the cat saved you,'" Behr said.
Meanwhile, while I don't love hearing about waste-of-oxygen humans dumping animals, I do like when there's a happy ending:
“I named him Simon and took him to a veterinarian where he was given his shots, wormed and all things necessary,” Sorensen says. “He was abused, the vet said; no wonder he is hand-shy. The vet says he would have died out in the cold, or would have been attacked by other animals. It was a miracle, for a dog lover like me, to have met the two guys by the fire in the park.”
[...] Simon, the rescued Chihuahua, is adapting well to his new home with Sorensen, his giant greyhound and cat. “The big dog tolerates him; they curl up together. I’m going to have Simon neutered this week. That may make it necessary for me to change his name to Simone.”
