BERLIN (Reuters) - A cat saved the life of a newborn baby abandoned on the doorstep of a Cologne house in the middle of the night by meowing loudly until someone woke up, a police spokesman said Saturday.
"The cat is a hero," Cologne police spokesman Uwe Beier said. "Its loud meowing got the attention of the homeowner and saved the baby from suffering life-threatening hypothermia. The homeowner opened door to see why the cat was making so much noise and discovered the newborn."
Although I am not a fan of cats, (mainly for economic reasons) stories like these do highlight their feline potential. Now if we could only get the rest of the species up to par with this kitty, then cats might be considered valuable to the human race.
