|Feline rescuer abandoned by owner in burning flat|
|STOCKHOLM, Feb 16 (Reuters) - A cat risked one of her nine lives to wake her owner when his flat caught fire in Vetlanda, southern Sweden -- but he left her behind when he fled panic-stricken from the flames. |
Cat Zarah woke Micke Sahlstrom, 39, in the middle of the night, yowling and hitting his face with her paws. Sahlstrom woke and ran for his life -- leaving Zarah behind.
Minutes later, the conscience-stricken Swede was relieved to see a firewoman carrying his feline saviour from the building, the tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet reported on Wednesday.
