Our top story of the week goes to Pudding, a cat who, hours after he was adopted from the Door County Humane Society in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, saved his new guardian’s life. The Green Bay Press Gazette reports that the 21-pound cat made himself right at home, acting as if he had always been there. An hour and a half after Amy Jung went to bed, Pudding came to her rescue. Jung, who was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 4, started to have a seizure. According to Jung, Pudding planted his weight on her chest and, when he could not wake her, began swatting her face and biting her nose. “Anything he could to pull me out of it (the seizure),” she said.
It worked. She woke up and the convulsions stopped long enough for her to call to her son for help. When Ethan did not respond to the calls, the cat ran to his room and jumped on his bed. Ethan later told her that he didn’t know anything was wrong until the giant cat landing on the bed woke him up. Jung is convinced that she would not have survived the night if Pudding had not intervened. Read the full story in the Green Bay Press Gazette.
A cat running for political office? Why not! Despite a disappointing defeat to James Webb in last November’s Virginia State Senate elections, Hank has vowed to try again. Catsparella reports that Hank intends to be the cat who gets the cream on November 6. In his announcement, Hank stated: “Our situation is too dire to risk placing this important job in the wrong paws, and that is why I have decided to run for US Senate for the great Commonwealth of Virginia. If I had to sum up my feelings for Virginia’s future, I would have to say: Meow.” Read more about Hank’s bid for senate on Catsparella. As a Virginia resident, I’m delighted to finally see a viable candidate on the ballot. Hank has my vote!
Last weekend’s season finale of My Cat From Hell featured two more cases of Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy coming to the rescue of cat guardians who were at the end of their rope. The show has been renewed for a third season, but you won’t have to go into complete Cat Daddy withdrawal.
Last Friday in Phoenix, Jackson appeared in front of a packed audience to premiere his seminar “Cat Mojo 101.” Organized by Moderncat Enterprises, the event attracted cat lovers from Arizona and other parts of the country. Jackson shared his successful approach to dealing with behaviourally challenged cats to the delight of attendees like Karen Speaker-Nunley, the guardian of two cats. “Jackson was funny and insightful,” she said. “Through it all, one thing was very clear. He loves cats — all cats. Even the hellish ones. I can’t wait for Cat Mojo 102!” Read the full story on azfamily.com.
