If anyone has a special story to share here how their cat saved a life I would love to read it. I am sorry I do not have stories where my cats have saved my life. I have saved theirs.

Maybe cats save lives by killing rats before they can spread bubonic plague or other rat borne diseases.

Cats have been know to alert owners to a fire in the home and to deadly carbon-monoxide in the home.
Luna the cat continually pawed at Emily Chappell-Root until she woke up and saved her six children from the devastating fire

There are two stories I know so far about cats doing the saving. One, is a cat named tara who save his young owner from a insane dog who tried to strangle the kid's leg. They knew her just a normal cat but a bully towards her dog siblings Another one is a cat who came into the couple's lives but one thing he's different from other cats, he stood up against two alligators. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sAF8gMN9c0

@Hannihar Yes, I saw a video on the news how a neighbor's dog tried to sneak up and attack a boy in his yard. Before he reached the boy, their cat came flying to the dog and attacked so hard that the dog went running. I loved that cat, because that was just so awesome to see.

I don't have any personal stories but have read stories of cats saving their kittens from fires. I hope you get some beautiful cat hero stories!

I do not have any special ones for my cats. I have saved them both but so far my Sophie I think does not appreciate what I did for her. She is back to her biting stage.

I have only heard of dogs saving lives, but I am certain cats can be heroic too. :-)

i find some cat stories on Facebook about their being mischievous and funny felines, and how they relate to the canines.
