We are confident that this tale will alter your opinion on cats if you now believe that they are merely distant, self-centered creatures who simply want to eat, sleep, and groom themselves.
Meet Joey, a black cat who was taken in by a wonderful family in Newfoundland, Canada, around two years ago from a rescue organization in Toronto. When the slow cooker caught fire in the middle of the night, he saved his owners by waking them up.
Scott White, Joey’s owner said he went to bed on a normal night after preparing a slow-cooker meal. “We went to bed around midnight and it was fine,” White said.
A few hours later, Joey went to White’s bedroom and woke him up with a paw on his face. “Usually, Joey doesn’t bother us when we sleep, but I could sense him pacing around the bed and I woke up with a paw on my face,” White told HuffPost.
White got up when she sensed something wasn’t right and smelled smoke coming from the kitchen. As he approached, he noticed that smoke from the slow cooker was filling the kitchen.
The fire alarm was about 20 feet away, but White claimed there was “a lot of haze” in the kitchen. Fortunately, Scott shut off the pot before any harm could be done.
With their pet, White and his fiancée were content. He had ample time to wake them awake. There’s little doubt that the outcome may have been different if they hadn’t been informed.
And the pair published the incident on their Instagram page with the comment, “My name is Joey and I’m the Hero that saved my family from a flaming crockpot,” in order to show their love and respect to Joey.
Joey is a hero, and he deserves a medal for his rescue. If you love this sweet story, please share it with your friends and family members!
We hope that this story will change your mind about cats, especially black cats.
