Cats are good at hunting and killing animals. Sometimes this can be a nuisance but in the case of Suzanne Featherstone and her husband, in Washington state, their cat saved them.

The couple had left a window open and a brown bat got inside. That’s when their cat, Me-Owly, came to the rescue and attacked the bat. Later tests proved that the bat was rabid, but Me-Owly was up to date on her rabies shots so she should be fine. This proves that cats can be useful in ways beyond just being a cute ball of fluff around the house.
