Thumper has saved the day. This black Labrador retriever, alerted her owner of a fire in the house.
Roland Cote, Thumper’s owner, said the dog grabbed his arm and woke him up from his sleep to alert him of the fire. Both Cote and Thumper were able to escape the house in the nick of time.
Investigators with the fire department believe that the fire was caused by a kerosene lantern that Princess, Cote’s cat, tipped over. The lantern, used as a night light, melted the rubber gas line to the refrigerator and spread quickly throughout the rest of the house.
Everyone made it out of the fire unharmed, except for Princess — her tail was singed by the flames.
Perhaps Princess was set up to look like the “evil cat”?
