Pudding the cat saved Amy’s life by pulling her out of a diabetic seizure the very same day she adopted him from a local animal shelter. An amazing cat and a miraculous story!
Pudding the cat is big. He is orange. He is laid-back. And he’s a lifesaver.
Just ask Amy Jung. The 36-year-old Wisconsin resident credits 21-pound Pudding with saving her from the grip of diabetic seizure mere hours after she adopted him from a local animal shelter.
Here’s what happened: On Feb. 8, Jung visited the Door County Humane Society with her son, Ethan. She had no intention of adopting a pet; she and her son just wanted to play with the cats, who are allowed to roam free at the no-kill shelter.
Jung made an on-the-spot decision to bring Pudding home. Always a calm and relaxed guy, Pudding took to his new digs right away, displaying not a hint of skittishness on his first day there.
That evening Jung, who has been living with diabetes since the age of 4, went to bed at about 9:30 p.m. About 90 minutes later, she started to have a diabetic seizure. That’s when“Pudding planted his weight on her chest and, when he could not wake her, began swatting her face and biting her nose.”
“If something or someone hadn’t pulled me out of that, I wouldn’t be here,” Jung said.
