FENELON FALLS – Carol Junkin never dreamed that a cat she adopted six months ago would alert her to a potentially life-threatening situation… Ms Junkin says Jack is “a very alert cat” but “not the in-your-face type.”
That changed early in the morning on May 17.
“It was about 5:30 a.m., and he was walking around my pillow. I was in a really deep sleep, so I wasn’t fully awake, and I shooed him away.”

Meanwhile, the dog slept through it all:
“I have a Scottish terrier, Bear, but he is old and he didn’t wake up,” she explained. “I think it’s just wonderful that a cat I haven’t had for very long did something like that; if it hadn’t been for him, I don’t know what would have happened.”
The Scottie News is just glad everyone’s safe and sound be they dog, cat or human. You’re our hero too, Jack.
