Tink the fire rescue feline from Shrewsbury is named cat of the year


A fast acting feline who alerted her owners to a house fire has been named Cat of the Year by an animal charity.

Tink jumped on top of Claire Hopkinson who was asleep in bed when an electrical fault sparked a fire at a neighbouring property in Shrewsbury.

Her family managed to get out of the house safely but Tink was overcome by the smoke and had to be revived by firefighters using a tiny oxygen mask.

“Without Tink we wouldn’t be here today,” said Mrs Hopkinson.

“Tink is a very valued family member she’s very precious to us

“Without Tink we wouldn’t been here today. It would have wrecked our lives if she had died in the fire.”

Tink was awarded Cat of the Year at the Cat’s Protection’s National Cat Awards held at London’s Savoy Hotel. read the whole story here…read the whole story here…
