Tilly the cat had spent most of her life as a stray on the streets of Melbourne, Australia before being adopted into a loving home just three weeks ago. But despite her previous unfamiliarity with the role of housecat, she's already proven to be a remarkably helpful companion to her new family.
With his wife and kids out for the day, pet-owner Matt Clayton says that he was hurrying out of the house on his way to work when he noticed that Tilly seemed to be trying to alert him to a light fixture on the ceiling near the hallway.
"She was looking up at me, looking up at the roof," Matt told News 7. "Meow, meow, meow."
