Cat dials 9-1-1

A man in Columbus, Ohio, successfully trained his cat to press the emergency autodial button on his telephone, and the training may have saved his life. The Associated Press reported that Gary Rosheisen fell out of his wheelchair and was unable to reach a telephone, but his cat called 9-1-1.

In other news, President Bush has nominated Tommy the Cat to be the new director of FEMA, highlighting his swift summoning of professional assistance in contrast to the agency's recent track record.
