Oftentimes, when cats jump on your bed, they want food.

This time, they wanted to save a life.

A trio of cats in the Italian fishing village of Camogli saved their 84-year-old owner’s life when a fire broke out in her home. When their chorus of meows failed to alert Mariangela Banchero, the group leapt on the bed to wake her up.

“The lady told us that she woke up and tried to go upstairs, but there was a lot of smoke, so she went out and called the nephew to ask for help,” neighbor Maurizio told Ruptly video agency.
