Tru Hero Finalist – Rascal

My cat is my hero.  One evening, an ex-roommate of mine came home really late, felt a little hungry, and decided to make some mac and cheese.  Unfortunately, he was so tired, he fell asleep on the couch as the pasta was boiling.  I was already asleep in my room upstairs when I was woken up by my cat, Rascal.  He had crawled on top of me, yelling at me until I finally rolled over to find that my room was filled with smoke.  I raced downstairs to discover a pot of pasta, water all boiled off, pouring out thick, white, acrid smelling smoke.  If it wasn’t for my baby boy, I feel I may not have woken up to just smoke…it could have been a full blown fire.  I am so grateful for every day I have with my hero kitty.  He has brought so much to my life, and I can’t imagine how things would have turned out without my little fire alarm.
