When Josh Ornberg's 13-year-old tabby cat climbed on his lap and began jumping around, he knew something was up. "She's usually not a very social cat," he told PEOPLE. "When I did wake up, I noticed the house was filling with smoke." Thanks to Baby's heads up, Ornberg and girlfriend Letitia Kovalovsky, who was then 7-months pregnant with twins, were able to exit their suburban Chicago residence safely after it was set ablaze.
