Oggy the cat always liked to snuggle up with Kate King Scribbins. However Kate noticed that got more aggressive than usual around her left breast. That’s when Kate learned that she had breast cancer and there was a tumorous growth in her left breast.

Cats have a sense of smell 9 – 16 times stronger than humans so it’s possible that Oggy could smell the cancer tumor. After treatment, Kate says Oggy has stopped focusing on her left breast so hopefully that means the cancer is gone for good. Fortunately if it comes back, Oggy should find it right away.
