Cat Sassie To The Rescue

Ellen Kay with Sassie.

TEENAGER Nathan Dunsire was busy doing his morning paper round when he spotted a cat in the window on one of his regular streets.

He was surprised because the cat, called Sassie, wasn't behaving at all normally. She was scratching and knocking at the window as if trying to attract his attention.

Worried Nathan, 15, looked through the letterbox and saw Ellen Kay, 71, collapsed on the floor. He immediately called the police.

Ellen had got up in the middle of the night to make herself a hot drink and had fallen. She suffered head and spinal injuries. She had lain on the floor for three hours. Thanks to Nathan's prompt response, she is now recovering at home after spending a week in hospital.

Nathan said: “I was delivering the morning paper and I walked up to the woman’s house.

“I saw the cat looking distressed, it was clawing the window and the blinds were still shut.

“I looked through the letterbox and saw her lying on the floor, I didn’t have my phone on me so I went to speak to her neighbour to see if they had the key.

“They didn’t so I ran home and told my mum, who called the police.”

Mrs Kay, of Kirkcaldy, had banged a broom on the floor in a desperate and unsuccessful bid to get attention.

Ellen and Nathan.

Meeting Nathan for the first time, she said: “I’m so glad to meet you. I’m pleased to bits. I can’t thank you enough. Some might not have bothered.”

Nathan’s father, Brian, said of his son: “I’m very proud of him.

“You see too many stories of kids doing wrong. It’s good we have one of them doing right.”
