A rescue cat in #Wisconsin saves his owner's life the very same day he was adopted!
And despite Mugford’s assessment of cats’ general unwillingness to help their owners, there are other documented cases of life-saving felines. In 2007, a nursing home cat named Oscar could apparently tell when residents were near death, and would shower them with affection right before they passed away. And in 2011, it was reported that a cat in Atlanta could predict its owner’s seizures, while a Pennsylvania cat saved its owner’s life by pawing at her when she was ill until she was compelled to call the doctor, where she learned that she had suffered a heart attack.
