Gary Rosheisen is wheelchair bound because of his frequent seizures and deteriorating strength. Gary got a cat named Tommy about three years ago as a companion in the home. Because of his frequent seizures, Gary had been to training Tommy to press a 911 speed dial button in case of emergencies. “The phone in the living room is always on the floor, and there is a speed dial button for 911.” One day, Gary had a seizure in his bedroom and fell from his wheelchair onto the floor. He couldn’t get up and his balance was also impaired due to the strokes. Unable to move, he had no way of calling for help… but luckily, Tommy was there! Police got a 911 call with no voice. They called back and when no one answer they sent Officer Patrick Daugherty to investigate. That is when he saw Tommy the cat waiting next to the phone and found Gary on the floor in his bedroom. “Tommy is my hero,” Rosheisen said.

A man calls 911 in a hurry. “911, what’s your emergency?” the operator asks. “My wife has just gone into labor,” the man tells her.
