Cat Saves Woman's Life

It's always nice when cats get some recognition for being such great companions too. I saw this story this morning and thought it was really cool. 

Cats may have nine lives, but humans have only one.
Claire Nelson of Reading is crediting her 10-year-old cat, Rusty, with saving her life.
Nelson, a retired nurse, said she was experiencing chest pains on June 8 when Rusty sensed something was wrong.
"Rusty kept following me around, no matter where I was standing or sitting, and jumping up on me with his front paws, letting out these guttural meows," said Nelson.
Nelson, 66, said her 22 pound cat usually has a relaxed and laid back personality, so she knew the way he was acting that morning was not normal.
"Finally, I said, 'Oh darn. Maybe this cat knows something I don't,'" said Nelson, who added that Rusty's behavior prompted her to take the bus to visit her doctor.
As time passed, Nelson said her condition grew worse. While at the bus terminal in downtown Reading, Nelson called 911 and was rushed to St. Joseph Medical Center.
