Tink the fire rescue feline from Shrewsbury is named cat of the year
A fast acting feline who alerted her owners to a house fire has been named Cat of the Year by an animal charity.
Tink jumped on top of Claire Hopkinson who was alseep in bed when an electrical fault sparked a fire at a neighbouring property in Shrewsbury.
The family managed to get out of the house safely but Tink was overcome by the smoke and had to be revived by firefighters using a tiny oxygen mask.
"Without Tink we wouldn't be here today," said Mrs Hopkinson.
