Love them or hate them, cats have personalities. They can be playful, grumpy, cuddly, even sad or angry! Most of the time, we tend to think of cats as opportunists who bond with humans in exchange for food and safety and are less attached to their owners than dogs.
If you thought cats can’t be heroes, think again!
Our feline friends are sometimes less friendly than dogs, but they still love their masters and are ready to defend them if necessary! There have been many cases of cats surprising humans with selfless acts of heroism.
We’ve heard of cats hissing at bullies, rescuing a 4-year-old from a neighbor’s dog, and keeping an abandoned baby safe, and meowing for attention and calling for help!
Ron Williams and Fluffy met last year, neither of whom could have suspected that they would end up sharing a strong bond, not usually shared even between humans. Fluffy was brought to Ron by a friend, to keep him company. It was a match made in heaven!
“I watched him and hey, I just fell in love with him,” Williams said.
Ron and Fluffy quickly became best friends
Fluffy was more than company for Ron, the little cat understood him perfectly and they talked a lot.
“The phone was ringing and I was saying ‘ringing,'” Ron said. “And I didn’t know he would understand that.”
It seemed like nothing could disrupt their romance, but one day Ron, who turned 85 last September, slipped and fell in the shower. He got hurt and couldn’t move.
Ron lay helpless on the bathroom floor for an entire day
“My arm was stuck under me, and the hours just kept ticking by,” Ron said. “4 p.m….” Ron explained.
With no help in sight, Ron lay helpless on the bathroom floor. He couldn’t reach his Life Alert because he left it in the other room and the bathroom door was closed. To make matters worse, he also couldn’t reach his phone. It was on the counter but too far for him.
It certainly didn’t bode well for Ron, alone and hurt.
At the crucial moment, Ron’s four-legged friend came to the rescue, proving once and for all that cats can be heroes!
Almost overcome with despair, Ron suddenly thought of Fluffy, who was in the room next to the bathroom. He then recalled how he trained Fluffy to pick up the phone when he said “ring”.
