Woman Saves Cat’s Life; Cat Returns

the Favor

When Amy Jung of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin adopted two cats from a local shelter, she had no idea that,   just hours later, the decision would save her life.

This incredible story was first reported by Samantha Hernandez of the Door County Advocate , earlier this month.

Jung wasn’t planning on coming home with a cat, let alone two cats that day. She and her son Ethan had stopped by the Door County Humane Society to play with the homeless felines.

But Pudding, a 21-pound orange and white cat, caught Jung’s attention. The two made a connection and Jung decided to adopt him. Pudding and another cat, Wimsy, were brought to the shelter together when their owner died a month earlier. Jung, not wanting to separate the two cats, adopted them both.

According to Jung, the pair of felines made themselves at home right away and all seemed well.

Until later that night when Jung, who has been diabetic since childhood, went into a diabetic seizure in her sleep.

That’s when the normally laid-back Pudding took action. Jumping on Jung’s chest, Pudding began to nudge and bite at her in an apparent attempt to rouse her. Jung said the heavy cat on top of her woke her long enough to call to her son for help.

When the sleeping Ethan did not hear his mother’s cries, Pudding raced into Ethan’s room and jumped on him, waking him up in time to get medical help for his mother.

Jung and her son are amazed and grateful to Pudding. “If something or someone hadn’t pulled me out of that, I wouldn’t be here,” Jung told the Door County Advocate.

Carrie Counihan, Door County Humane Society executive director, described the giant cat as very laid back and relaxed. To jump up on someone like he did to Jung was not his normal behavior, making it all the more believable that he knew something was amiss. "That, for me, makes the story really stand out," she told the Door County Advocate. "That he was sensing something and reacting to it."

At the suggestion of her doctor, Jung registered Pudding as a therapy cat. Pudding now sits by Jung’s side and meows if he senses her blood sugar may be low.
