Seen on a door somewhere in an apartment complex. I find the American obsession with pets amusing, and at times, alarming.

The first thing I thought when I saw the sign, though, was, “How the hell will someone be able to search for a cat in a fire?”. The second thing I thought was that the cat would probably the first to leave – through a window, or any opening, in case of a fire.

    I’ve seen many stickers like this. A similar one is offered for sale here; that site also claims that firefighters are happy to rescue pets, but this article seems to think otherwise. Personally I would want my pets to be rescued if possible, but all we would probably do would be to prop the door open on our way out and maybe grab our elderly cat who might not make it out by herself. I’d be devastated if I lost any of my kitties in a fire.

    Who would bother reading signs in case of a fire anyway… :-)
