    From the article:

    Sounds like the victim's family is interested in keeping Paco, but seems he and Kelly had a special bond. A video here shows Paco's tail wagging as he's reunited with other family members:

    Very sad story. It also shows how EMT/Authorities treat animals during a medical emergency.

    It is quite common for a person to be removed from a home and hospitalized while any pets they have are left behind to starve to death. Animal control is not notified, the EMT/Police just pack up the injured person and lock the house up with the animals inside.

    People have woken up in the hospital 2-3 weeks later only to discover their beloved dog/cat starved to death during that time. :(

    It makes you wonder if there isn't some way that EMT/Authorities can't get the RSPCA or Animal Control notified to call around to an address where the occupant has been taken to hospital.
    This happened to someone I know - his cat was still inside his house after an ambulance had taken him to hospital. He regained conciousness in intensive care unit (two weeks later) and tried asking the nurses who did not know what he was talking about. So he kept asking for a friend and giving their phone number. This worked.
    When his friend went to his house, his poor cat was still alive. Luckily he did not always close cupboard doors. The poor cat helped herself to her bags of cat food, then the packets of biscuits and bread. There were two toilets in the house after her water bowls were dry. After that there was only the dripping tap while she still had the strength to jump up on the bench.
    The friend arrived in time to save her.
    I often wonder if there isn't some way EMT/Authorities can notify the RSPCA or Animal Control to call around to an address where the occupant has been taken to Hospital, it is a tragic situation for all concerned.
