I can be a hero too.
Today Mum had the washing machine on, and I was supervising (you know how good I am at that). Mum then went and started emptying the dishwasher and cleaning up the kitchen.
I started yowling really bad. Mum kept calling out, asking what on earth was wrong with me. But I kept it up, yowling and pacing back and forth until finally she had to come investigate.
Then she saw what I was trying to tell her. The washing machine had overflowed and there was water everywhere. It was just starting to come out from the tiled area in the laundry and onto the carpet. And it was about 3 inches away from Mum's new dyson vacuum cleaner as well! I don't think that is waterproof somehow.
Luckily I was able to tell Mum in time, so she could clean it up or there really would have been trouble.
I got rewarded with extra hugs and kisses, and a second brush! I love being brushed. I just about drool when I get brushed.
So today I am a hero cat!
