No, they're on there own in a life and death situation.
I could see jumping into water to save a drowning person, or running into a burning building to try to save a child. But for me to risk my life for a
cat or dog would just be nuts.
Sure I've heard the stories of "Man Drowns Trying To Save Dog", and all I do is shake my head and think of nominating them for a Darwin award. In
one case in Toronto a man jumped into a swollen creek to rescue his dog, the dog swam ashore further downstream only to be left with no owner because
he died in the attempt.
Don't think of me as cold and uncaring, I just think the survival of a member of my species is more important than any other. As much as I love and
care for my cats I still consider them to be emergency rations and would eat them in an emergency.......
