I often share stories with you of human heroes, who help protect us felines. But sometimes, it is the other way around. Today I want to share with you the story of a true cat hero. Her name is Trigger, and she is a senior mixed breed with a lot of Russian blue in her.
Trigger’s 75 year old human was in the kitchen, making herself breakfast. It was an ordinary day, until this human dropped the butter knife and went to bend over to pick it up. She was unable to stand back up after picking up the butter knife, and used the sink to pull herself up.
Then she “tried to take a step” but she was unable to move her feet. She tried calling to her adult daughter, who lives with her, but she was unable to make her voice loud enough.
We felines know when you humans are not doing well. My human had surgery at different times on both of his shoulders. I knew he was in pain and went to comfort him both times.
This is why our cat hero Trigger was looking up at her human with a concerned look. She knew something was wrong. Trigger meowed at her human, who said “momma needs help.”
Trigger meowed to acknowledge her human, and then went down the hall, meowing all the way. Her insistent meows woke up her human’s adult daughter, who came running to help her mother.
Trigger’s human was taken to the place where humans in white coats treat other humans, Here, she received medication to help dissolve the clots that cause most strokes. And after around two weeks, Trigger’s human was healthy enough to return home.
But none of this would have been possible if our hero cat Trigger didn’t realize that something was wrong with her human. And then she got help.
That is one heroic cat, my furiends!
