We had a scare at home yesterday morning at around 4:25.
Seems some dust settled on the sensor of one of the four smoke alarms we have and set it off. They're all wired together so all four were going off.
This did'nt appear to be a typical low battery chirpping so I called 911 while my wife was attempting to round up the cats and put them in carriers and load them in her Jeep. Alley, Como, Casper and Rascal were easy targets. Sam, Stinky and Gizmo hid under the bed.
I caught Sam in a fishnet and drug her out. She fought harder than any largemouth bass would.
Right then the fire department showed up so I released her and have the cuts on my left arm to prove it.
Two engines, a batallion chief and an ambulance arrived within seconds, a minute later the sheriff arrived. Three engines were enroute but were cancelled.
I've concluded that if it was a real emergency, we probably would have lost two or more of our cats.
So have some kind of plan for your DAMN CATS! and dogs and birds etc
