Cats Are Wonderful

Way back when, I wrote about Oscar, a cat who lived in a nursing home and would sleep on a patient's bed before they crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. Then I told you about Homer, a blind cat who saved his Mom from being attacked.

Today I am going to tell you about Pudding, a 21 pound shelter cat who saved his owner's life just hours after he was adopted.

Pudding is a really laid back cat, and aside from being really really big, there isn't anything noticeably special about him. Except that he woke up his new owner in the middle of the night because she was having a diabetic seizure in her sleep. She was able to call to her son, who got help.  You really have to go read about Pudding. His story is making headlines. Mom saw it on Google!

Non-cat owners think we are selfish self-centered animals. Appearances can be deceiving. We are wonderful, and devoted family members. Just last night I lay on Mom's lap as she was watching Project Runway All-Stars and later slept next to her in bed.

How wonderful are YOU to your beans?

Even though I don't look like I am paying that much attention to Mom, almost always if she is lying on the couch, I am there at the end of it. Within less than a minute of her going upstairs, I am there behind her. I am super devoted!

Pudding is sure one amazing cat, like the others, Oscar and Homer.

How amazing that Pudding who had only just arrived at her home knew what to do.

Did you wonder why she decided at a spur of the moment to take Pudding home? There was an instant bond! Millie, you are an amazing kitty, too. From a tiny hurt and terrified kitten to a snuggle bunny!
