Rescue Kitty Saves Family From Fire

By Caroline Golon,

A rescue cat who was taken in by a Jones County, Ga. family, returned the favor by saving the family’s home from going up in flames.

According to the Macon Telegraph, seven-year-old Brendon Rinauro begged his parents to let him keep Mr. Meowy, a sweet white cat from animal rescue group Macon Purrs ‘N Paws. Brendon’s parents, Kayti and Sal, weren’t convinced they wanted to adopt a cat, but reluctantly agreed to foster Mr. Meowy temporarily.

The next day, the family left their home to go out for the evening. As she was leaving, Kayti ran back inside to turn on a light for Mr. Meowy. That’s when she heard the cat meowing loudly from Brendon’s bedroom.

Since Mr. Meowy had been extremely quiet since he’d come to stay with them, Kayti wondered why he was suddenly making so much noise and decided to check on him. When she did, she discovered what the cat was meowing so loudly about: a pillow had fallen on a nightlight in Brendon’s room and was starting to burn.

Luckily, Kayti was able to extinguish the smoking pillow before it burst into flames. She has no doubt that, without Mr. Meowy’s help, she would have left the house again, not realizing there was a smoldering fire in the bedroom. “Everything would have been gone, no question,” said her husband, Sal. “This is literally everything we have.”

Now, the family has no more doubts that Mr. Meowy belongs with him. “We were just going to foster him for a little while,” Kayti told the Telegraph. “Now, he’s not going anywhere.
