First, I think the cat called for help so it wouldn't starve and second, cats are in it for themselves.

The cat could have just ate its owner (proud owner of a new cat).

Even if the cat did it on accident (or more accurately, did it randomly rather than purposefully), that's a pretty damn good accident.

The part that I find questionable is:

Rosheisen said he got the cat three years ago and tried to train him to call 911, but was unsure whether the training ever stuck.

Can you imagine all the false calls to the 9-1-1 center while teaching your cat this task? It's stupid and dangerous.

Well, not really, if one has an IQ over 25 and thinks of unplugging that phone during the training...

Using animals as security and alarm devices is so 19th century. Why would a guy in a precarious condition like that not have an alarm or cell phone velcroed to himself all the time? Instead of trying to herd a cat into saving him? Sure, he got lucky once, but he was more likely to be puked or peed upon.
