It is not at all uncommon for cats and dogs to alert people when their house is on fire. Many other species are capable of such feats as well. The August 8, 2008 issue of The Week proves that point with a brief article. Enjoy.

An Australian couple are crediting their pet rabbit with saving their lives. Michelle Finn says she and partner Gerry Keogh were awakened at 7 a.m. by “the sound of a thumping rabbit.” They found their 6-month-old pet rabbit–known as Rabbit–charging around his cage, and their house on fire. All three escaped the flames, although both the house and the rabbit’s cage were destroyed. “It could have been a lot worse,” said Melbourne fire chief Mike Swift, “and without the rabbit it could have been a tragedy.”
