Minich - A German cat might very well have saved its family from a fiery death by waking them up before a blaze could get out of control, reported police in the southern German city of Neustadt bei Coburg on Monday.
According to police, a washing machine caught fire while the family slept. However, the cat woke the family up, giving the owners time to pull the plug on the burning appliance and get their daughters, aged 2 and 11, outside.
Fire crews eventually extinguished the blaze.
