If you happen to have a pet cat in your life, you don’t need anyone to tell you that they are absolutely awesome. Of course, cats have different personalities, with some of them being cute and cuddly and others being somewhat aloof. I’ve had cats that you rarely ever see because they tend to spend most of their waking hours hiding under a bed somewhere. For a man by the name of Ron Williams, however, his cat was more than a companion, it was a lifesaver! It’s a story that I’m sure will inspire you to be a little more loving to your cat today.
84-year-old Williams is an Army veteran and he fell down one day and couldn’t get up. He was coming out of the shower at the time and it was just one of those moments that seemed as if it was going to be the end of it all. Not only was he home alone, but he also landed in a position where he couldn’t move. His life alert device was on the charger in another room and his cell phone was out of reach on the counter. It seemed as if his life was about to be over as the hours continued to tick by and his arm was pinned underneath him. He could only lay there and hope that somebody would find him before his time was up.
That is where his cat, Fluffy came in. Ron fell in the bathroom at 8 AM and was there until midnight. Fluffy was there keeping them company but he did a lot more. They used to play a game together where the phone would ring and Ron would say ‘ring-a-ding’.
He would play that game again while he was on the bathroom floor and Fluffy realized that it meant the phone was ringing. The cat was so smart that he brought him the phone and he was able to call for help.
