Waiting for a knock at the door as we speak.

My cat, possum decided to sit by the phone, quietly dialling - 000.

( that is the Australian - 911 ! )

First I knew of this was the loud message alert; espousing that "we" had in fact dialled the emergency number.
And ... there is now an operator on line.

Quickly abondoning my post on the funnies - thread , I launched myself at the phone - picking up the handset - whilst still airborne.

Without hesitation - I was explaining that ' somehow '; my cat had dialled '000' and - no drama - hehe !

The operator was very nice and said " no problem ... "

I have heard rumours to the effect that - any emergency call warrants a patrol car drop by.

Waiting ...

At least they show up.
My sister had a similar incident. She was teaching her grandaughter to dial 911 and didn't realize the calls were actually going through. She had 3 Sheriff Deputies show up and ask to walk through the house to make sure they weren't being held against their will.

Are you, perhaps, abusing your feline companion? She obviously thought she needed assistance!

I fear for her safety. May they throw away the key !!!

Oo

My dog once called a prostitute. Had to dig 2 holes at 3am in the dark...

I am still putting myself in the operator's shoes. Thinking - "yeah right ! Pfft ! The cat called ... ummm ok."

Could be disappointed if they don't show ... !

Convincing actor- who has bypassed the alert ?

Or cat ?

Opinions... ?

Assuming all is - 'tongue in cheek' ...

More mirth ! ( still no police visitors )

They definitely respond here in Canada. No exceptions. Been over half an hour for you now though. Starting to seem a bit unlikely. Or are you in a rural area?

Yep semi rural.

Still would not surprise me if I get a post mid-night knock.

They may slot it into a - just have a look as you are passing thing - to the late shift.

In my home state the cops will arrive for every emergency dial no matter if it's a mistake or not. I think it's policy.

My cats love to knock over phones. They are itching to dial a catnip delivery hotline or the chicken-salmon(Furturama reference) delivery. At least no emergency number, yet!

Yeah, it's policy for them to show(I'd guess in most places in the US anyway). Odd note- Something-unknown- kept dialing 9/11 on a land line, at the time there was no phone plugged/no computer in. Cops were stumped too when they had to keep showing up. Heard of it in very haunted places, surely non incidentally that rental complex was very creepy-had experiences there.

Hey Timely,
Maybe this wasn't their first cat call, and they actually believed you.

Or like you said, perhaps they just drove by to make sure everything was ok.

Our cat knocks my mobile phone over all the time, but it has screen lock, so unless Izzy learns how to swipe her ginger paw across my phone, I'm safe.

Spooky!
At least the cops showed up. That would be a good story for the paranormal thread!

Hey RR!
They must have trusted my word as they didn't show up.

The offending phone was a digital land line.
The loudspeaker function was luckily cat-activated as well, else I may have been made aware of the issue
by loud knocking! lol.

The phone has been moved !

I always wondered how many misdials they get because of the 000 number . Cats excluded .

I reckon they must get heaps of calls from 1- 2 yr olds speaking gibberish ! Lol !

Fortunately, I think the number for mobiles is 112.
