A cat's tale: Rescued tabby returns the favor

November 14, 2011

Black cats crossing a path may be bad luck for some, but for Haley Rios it was a sign of good luck.

Blackie — known as Haley's cat now — wandered into the Rios' home in October of last year and never left.

“We had to nurse him with a bottle because he was so small when he showed up and he had no fur on him,” said Haley's mother, Stephanie Rios.

On Oct. 26, Blackie prevented a possible tragedy. Stephanie went into Haley's room as usual to wake her up for school, but it turned out it wasn't just any ordinary morning.
