It’s a cat. It hadn’t been fed in several days and went to the neighbor’s house to get the neighbor to feed it. My cat paws at the window when it wants in to eat.

Cats are persistent!

Our cat taps on our shoulders when he wants something; if we disregard it, he will take our hand or arm in his mouth.

That article was so garbled, but I still shared it on facebook. We are of the “lucky black cat” club, and that cat was sure lucky for its owner.

GOOD KITTY!

Our cat Baby will lick my nose while I’m asleep to get me to put new food out. I feed her right away. Stinky cat tongue. Ewe!

Oh, good lord. Five days later the cat was hungry, so it’s smart? Sounds like it was trying to save its own skin, not the owner.

I have a small drawing of a cat on the floor looking up and the words “feed me you fool” are written on it. That’s a cat for ya! :)

Slinky Malinky is a great cat name. Guess he decided to live up to it and do something great.

Well the cat saved not only the women’s life, but the one who more likely feds him as well. Cats do not forget those who fed them.

On the other hand, his behavior has changed since the incident. He now checks on his mum regularly to make sure she’s okay.

More of a "time to get up!" sign. That's how we're woken up most mornings but it's so cute it's hard to be angry.
