Meet Sable: The Black Cat Who Volunteers As A Student Crossing Guard

Traditionally it is supposed to be bad luck when a black cat crosses your path, but for the students of Enterprise Middle School in West Richland, Washington – it is a very different story.

They just love seeing Sable, the black cat who volunteers as a student crossing guard, in the mornings as the cross the road to get to school and in the afternoons as they make their journey home.

Sable, who is 15, belongs to Tamara Morrison who lives on the street. Morrison said that one day she noticed her beloved moggy go outside as the school bell chimed to watch the children as they crossed over the road. Ever since that day over a year ago, Sable comes out in time to watch the children get safely across the street in the morning and is back out again right on time as they leave.

Monti Franckowiak, a safety patrol advisor said; He’s out there just like the students are, whether it’s raining or snowing, or real hot and sunny, the cat is out there.”

Sable is hugely popular amongst the kids who always stop to pet the friendly black cat and the safety patrol officers who consider him to be part of the team now! Sable’s owner has even bought the cat a safety vest to make him an honorary member of the Enterprise school Safety Patrol.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, isn’t that adorable!
