Feline rouses woman from diabetic seizure by jumping on her chest, swatting her face
Pudding the cat is big. He is orange. He is laid-back. And hes 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.
If something or someone hadnt pulled me out of that, I wouldnt be here, Jung told the Green Bay Press-Gazette newspaper.
Heres 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.
But, as can happen with felines and humans, Pudding and Jung felt a strong and immediate connection.
He just gravitated to her, Door County Humane Society Executive Director Carrie Counihan told TODAY.com.
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.

For the list, S&A. Thanks.
"...wats wit da calm and relaxed snide remark?"
Orange tabbies tend to be the most laid back of creatures. Pudding is a perfect name for one. I am sure this Pudding will be well taken care of for the remainder of his life.
“Wake up! Wake up! (whapwhapwhap) The cat box needs changing!”
What a handsome kitty.
A can of shrimp for you this morning!
Looks like he may have a bit of Maine Coon in him, which would explain both the size and the laid-back attitude. We have two purebred Maine Coon Cats and they really are extremely chilled-out cats in general.
that’s more like it
Maine Coon’s may be the best cats of all time. I’ve had two and when I get settled I’ll bave another BIG Maine Coon! (Keeps the dogs out of the yard)
I thought that a pet has to at least dial 911 before the story makes the news.
Our cat Paws saved me on numerous occasions from attacks by deadly Dorito chips. The thing about cats is, they eat whatever they defeat. That’s why I make sure I never lose a fight with a cat. I might have to fire off a few rounds to scare the cat off, but there’s no way I’m going to become a moist and meaty taste treat for some four-legged interloper.
PING this one over to Slings and Arrows. :)=^..^=
My kitty Rudy used to do this for me.We lost him in Mar of 2010.He would know long before I did that I was having a reaction and would start meowing and pacing and just generally making a pest of himself until I test myself and he saw that I was doing something about it.He would also help bring me wake if I was asleep when it was happening.Very remarkable animal and I miss him dearly.Wish I could find another kitty with the same talent.

Even there is heroes in the feline world! :)=^..^=
I swear those great big orange cats are the best! I had one, and he was fantastic!!
That there are.
I love ‘em all.
Pudding came from a litter of four cats. The other three are named Georgie, Porgie and Pie.
Check out this laid back big orange fella:
Alfie, King of the Jungle,
Shelter cat adopted 2000
Cleo, rescued by us from a
field in Southern Colorado
in November 2010.
Her story here:
Ruby, Shelter Cat
Adopted March 2011
Ham, Shelter Cat,
Adopted December 2011
This guy is the typical Orange:
outgoing, laid back, smart,
and a lover
We were looking for another orange cat this past December and one of the prospects was a Norwegian Forest cat mix. This cat was the biggest, fluffiest, most beautiful cat I’ve ever seen. If we had to just go by looks, I would have adopted her, but she was a little shy and had a couple of other issues so I didn’t think she would be a good match for our busy, little household. When we went back a couple of days later, she had been adopted. See post above to see what we got instead.
Give that cat a medal! And some catnip!
