Hero Cat Fights Off Rattlesnake To Protect Human Sister
December 6, 2017
A family cat in Orlando, Florida has been hailed a hero after he saved a little girl from the deadly fangs of a rattlesnake.
Cyndi Anderson says Oreo has always been very protective of her granddaughter Jaiden.
"It's not just Jaiden that has such a strong bond, although she is the closest. It's the whole family. He seems to watch over everyone in strange, inexplicable ways, including the 11 month old human sister. He seems to be wise beyond his years," Cyndi told Love Meow.
On November 25, while the children were playing outside, Cyndi noticed Oreo acting strangely and then spotted an eastern diamondback rattlesnake.
The venemous snake had gotten too close for comfort to Jaiden and the kids, and that's when Oreo sprang into action and tried to keep it from attacking his family.
Because of his heroic act, the children are safe, but Oreo was bitten on one of his legs.
He was sent to a local animal hospital for emergency treatments and is expected to make a full recovery.
"He is showing determination to heal. He's a trooper. Oreo's condition is getting better and it does appear that his wound is healing — with proper continued care, his leg will be saved," Cyndi said.
