Heroic Adopted Cat Saves New Owner’s Life


When you adopt a pet from a shelter, the good deed of giving a creature in need a loving home is its own reward.

But when Amy Jung picked up a 21-pound orange-and-white cat named Puddin from a Humane Society nearby her Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin home, her reward was so much greater. The cat promptly saved her life.

Jung is a diabetic, and just hours after bringing Puddin and friend home, she fell into a diabetic seizure. Sensing something was up, Puddin jumped on top of Jung and started pawing at her face. Eventually that snapped Jung out of her spell. But she still wasn’t able to move or yell loud enough for her son to help her.

So it was Puddin to the rescue again, rushing over to the room of her son, who had gone to sleep for the night, and waking him up to.

If something or someone hadn’t pulled me out of that, I wouldn’t be here,” she said.

And her doctor agreed.  Which is why Jung is registering Puddin — who seems to able to recognize when Jung’s blood sugar is low — as a therapy animal. It’s stories like this that make us love our feline friends even more.
