About 45 years ago, we went through something similar. Mom was awakened by our cat, Tom Tinker, pawing her arm. When she opened her eyes, she saw a layer of smoke just above her face. She got Dad up and they got me and sis out of the house and into the car. No fire, but something had blocked our chimney (coal furnace) and the smoke got into the house.

Way to go, Winnie!

Waaaay cool! The company I work for does smoke & soot clean-up (among other things). We cleaned a home that had been saved by the cat. That cat went to 3 bedrooms, waking up everyone in the house!
Having animals in the photos that I upload is against the rules, but in this case I "accidently" included one of the cat.
