Army veteran Ron slipped and fell onto the bathroom floor and his furry angel saved his life in the most brilliant way!
One day, a friend stopped by with a special surprise for Ron Williams — a male cat named Fluffy.
“I looked at him and hey, I just fell in love with him,” Ron said. The 84-year-old cat dad and Fluffy hit it off immediately.
No one realized at the time Fluffy would be more than just a beloved companion. He’d become Ron’s hero, too, after the heroic cat saves a life!

On the day Ron Williams fell while getting out of the shower, it was the perfect storm of calamities to make for a possibly very tragic ending.
For starters, the 84-year-old was all alone at home except for his faithful companion, Fluffy.
When he fell, he landed in a position where he couldn’t move at all. He’d also left his life alert device in the other room on the charger.
And while Ron’s cell phone was in the bathroom with him, it was out of reach on the counter.
“My arm was pinned under me, and the hours kept going by,” he explained.
Ron Williams had no choice but to lie in agony on the floor, hoping and praying someone would find him before it was too late.
Once Fluffy came to live with Ron, the 84-year-old veteran would spend much of his day narrating for the cat what he was doing.
“The phone would ring, and I would say ‘ring-a-ding’,” he explained.
Ron laid on the bathroom floor from 8 am until midnight. Thankfully, though, he had Fluffy in the room to keep him company.
But the cat would actually go on to save his life, too!
“I said ‘ring-a-ding Fluffy, you’re my only hope’,” Ron recalls. “And he was. It wasn’t even five minutes later I felt something hit my hand. And I’m here because of it.”
That “something” was Ron’s cell phone. From all the times Ron had told Fluffy “ring-a-ding” when he was receiving a phone call, he’d connected that phrase to the phone for Fluffy.
And when Ron spoke those words in his desperate time of need, the brilliant cat brought him his phone so he could call for help just in time.
“I relive it a million times,” the 84-year-old says. “What if he wouldn’t have been in there with me? I’d be dead today,”
