Cats Can Save Lives

Cats Can Save Lives

There are numerous accounts of cases where cats have intervened and saved a human’s life. Today from Review Tales, I wish to discuss this matter and hope that you enjoy reading it.

Although cats are not known to be man’s best friend. There are numerous times where they have made a difference.

Tara, the cat, famously fought off a dog that attacked her four-year-old autistic owner as he rode his bicycle in the driveway of the family’s Bakersfield home in May of 2014. The video of this attack was broadcasted everywhere showing how the dog attacked the boy while he was playing outside on his bike.

In 2017, a family of 8 were recused by a cat from a house fire. The cat was insisting on waking them up and notified them that way from what was going on.

A cat named Pretty Pippa saves her owner’s life more than 20 times a day. All she does is wake her 8-year-old owner everytime her sugars are dangerously low.

Many believe that unlike dogs, cats are not that protective of their owner, and generally do not take action in order to save or help humans. Well this thou

    I always looked after my children when they were little. When Robin, our humans’ son, fell off his bike and broke his collar bone, I stayed by his side for days and patrolled his bed, so nobody could disturb his healing. I was his mate and gladly gave up my other duties to support him while he needed me.

    My beloved cat who passed away in 2001 was like that. A very rare cat. The ones I have now would probably be concerned if I was attacked, but only when their food bowls ran out.

    What they do provide is a sense of peace as they sleep near me while I work. That’s enough for me.

    My cat had saved me twice.
    One from a car accident that almost hit me when I was eight.
    Second, was at the time when he prevented me from going to the river to do swimming with my cousin. It turned out there was a crocodile nearby and had attacked a villager on that same time at the same time we were about to go.
    I believed all animals can protect us human if one has a good close bond with them.

    I read a post in a cat group about a young woman’s cat who lept at the woman’s boyfriend and clawed his face till he ran away when he hit her in the face. Cats do save lives!

    My girls always knew how I was feeling, they knew when I just needed them beside me, they knew when I needed a cuddle, they knew when I just needed to be alone but would keep an eye on me.
    They were far better than any human at this.

    Oh goodness! I’ve found cats to be very protective of the two-leggeds they partner with. One saved my spouse’s life – she was dangerously exhausted and left rice on the stove. It boiled dry and caught fire. She was breathing in the smoke. The cats were under the smoke but they worked together to wake her up (she was very deeply asleep) and saved her life and my house.

    It’s a little less important perhaps but my calico is very concerned if I don’t eat, sleep, go to work or come home on time. She reminds me constantly of what I’m supposed to be doing!

    An old friend of mine, who has sadly passed away, once had a cat who caught a burglar by launching at him from the top of a refrigerator, holding on to his head and raking with his back feet. Rode him around like that while my friend called 911.

    It’s natural that cats act to protect their humans less often than dogs do. Dogs are pack animals hard-wired to co-operate. Cats are essentially lone hunters and even the family unit in the wild doesn’t last long. However, domestic cats are changing: they’re finding behaviour patterns to handle continuing close relations not only with humans, but with other cats and even dogs. The house full of cats is a very unnatural situation, but not that uncommon. They’re adapting and maybe evolving. They’re coming to react differently, to be more social. Nonetheless, it seems to me that a lot of the situations where a cat has been a rescuer or a helper, it’s either helped a child or another being it might see as a kind of child (quite famously, a blind dog), so maybe its parenting instincts are coming into play, or the bond is exceptionally strong, maybe because the cat itself was rescued and knows it, or it regards its human as its parent.
