We’ve recently mentioned how animals seem to have supernatural abilities to sense danger, and this amazing story confirms it. Amy Jung of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin and her son Ethan spontaneously adopted a couple of cats from their local shelter on February 8. Pudding, a large 21-pound orange and white tabby made himself at home quickly, acting as if he’d always lived there.
That night, Jung went to bed and apparently started having a diabetic seizure. Pudding jumped on her chest and began batting her face and biting her nose in an effort to wake her up. He was able to bring her to consciousness long enough for her to be able to call out to her son, though it wasn’t enough to wake Ethan. So the giant cat went into his bedroom to wake him as well by jumping on his bed, which enabled him to hear that something was wrong with his mother.
Jung has had diabetes since she was 4 years old and is convinced she would not have made it through the night without Pudding’s intervention. Her doctor told her he had heard of animals being able to sense chemical changes in people. “”Realistically you can’t be without him,” he emphatically said. Pudding is being registered as an official therapy animal. He sits at her feet and meows at her when her blood sugar is dropping.
Even though Amy Jung wasn’t necessarily looking to adopt that day, it certainly was a win-win situation for her family and also for two cats in need of a home. We’d love to hear about your pet fulfilling unexpected needs!
