A three-year-old cat is credited with saving her napping owner by tapping on their nose with her paw to alert her of a gas leak. Trudy Guy awoke from her nap to find Schnautzie lying on her chest and extending her paw to cover her owner's nose. A leaking gas pipe, that had broken above the shut-off valve, was later discovered. Schnautzie was awarded the Purple Paw by the Animal Foundation in Great Falls, Montana.
