Jeter the cat is being called a hero for alarming and waking up his owner early Saturday morning.
Morris said that Jeter pounded on the bedroom door, eventually waking him. Morris said he woke to sounds of wind and could see flames. He escaped the fire, but initially could not find his cat.
Eventually, Morris was reunited with Jeter at a shelter. The cat only suffered singe marks on its whiskers and soot on its paws. Morris and Jeter have settled into a new apartment and are both doing OK.
Volunteers are helping to reunite other owners with their pets.
