Amy Jung, a 36-year-old Wisconsin resident, adopted a 21-pound named Pudding from a local animal shelter. Within hours, she suffered a diabetic seizure. Pudding planted his weight on her chest and, when he could not wake her, began swatting her face and biting her nose.
Amy came to her senses long enough to yell for her son. Pudding then jumped onto Ethan’s bed and startled him into action. He immediately rushed to get his mom the help she needed.
“Her doctor said she could have gone into a coma and not come out of it if much more time had gone by,” Humane Society Executive Director Carrie Counihan said. “The fact that Pudding did what he did without knowing her that well is just amazing to me.”
The next time your cat swats you in the face early in the morning, he or she could just be practicing tactics that could save your life, so reward your kitty with extra food and catnip, and thank your cat by serving it with greater loyalty than ever before.
