The story of the cat who saved a boy from a stray bullet
This feline really put his life on the line to save his friend, a little boy of just 3 years old. The mom of the little boy, Angelina Sipe, heard the noise of breaking glass, like something had entered the house through the window.
When she got to the living room, she saw that her little boy was asleep on the sofa. However the family cat (called Opie) had received a bullet in his side!
If Opie hadn’t covered the little boy, the child would have received the shot instead of him. The family immediately took the cat to the vet. He suggested euthanasia due to the extent of the wound. However, the family refused to euthanize.
Little by little, the kitty has recovered, although he will have to live with some after-effects of the bullet wound. For this family, Opie is a real hero.
A cat saves a baby’s life by protecting it from the cold
This story took place in Obinsk, in the southern part of Moscow, Russia. A street cat, called Masha by the neighborhood, saved the life of a baby just 3 months old. The baby was abandoned by its mother and left beside a garbage can outside an apartment building.
At this spot, the building’s occupants had built a small cardboard box shelter for the street cat. When the cat found the baby in her box crying from the cold, she went and wrapped herself around him to keep him warm. Masha has a very thick coat, so she was able to save the baby from dying of exposure to the cold.
The cat stayed still next to the baby for hours, without budging an inch. When a neighbor finally saw them, Masha was licking the baby and warming him up using her body heat.
Before the baby was taken to the local hospital, his savior refused to leave his side. Masha was very worried about him. She only calmed down when the medics finally took him away in the ambulance.
A cat saves a boy from a dog attack
You’ve heard the saying that a dog is man’s best friend, right? Well, in this case it was a cat. It all happened in Bakersfield, California (United States), when a little boy was playing outside his house. Suddenly a huge dog appeared on the scene.
The little boy was riding his bicycle and was unexpectedly attacked by a dog. The canine grabbed him by the leg and started to pull him off the bike. At that moment, Tara, the family cat, saw what was happening. She launched herself onto the dog, claws flying, and the dog immediately took off running.
The family took the boy to hospital to get some stitches in his leg where the dog bit him. And Tara? She’s become something of a local hero, receiving awards and acclaims, but remains with her loving family despite her newfound fame.
