Check out this 3-legged cat named Fizzy. Fizzy sleeps downstairs with his brother and sister. When the flood waters from Ivan came in at 4 am, Fizzy meowed--and meowed until he awakened his caretakers, who were asleep upstairs. They found the three cats wading through 4 inches of water! Fizzy has been hailed as a hero and all 3 cats are safe and dry.
