Schnautzie the cat wasn’t looking for affection that day in April 2010 when she sat on her owner Trudy Guy’s chest and started tapping her nose. Schnautzie was saving Guy’s life. When Guy was awoken by her feline friend, she heard the roaring of a gas pipe, which had broken outside her bathroom. She was able to escape and call for help, but firefighters told her the house could have blown up with her inside if Schnautzie hadn’t alerted her to the danger. For her valor, the cat received the Purple Paw award from the Animal Foundation of Great Falls, Montana.
