Cat's Lifesaving Efforts Win Nationwide Pet Rescue Contest

"When Pudding jumped off of my chest and ran out of the room I instantly felt a sense of panic thinking that my life depended on this animal and without him I would die," said Jung. "After minutes of feeling alarmed and helpless, the next noise I heard was the sound of my son's feet hitting the floor and I immediately felt a wave of relief and realized that this cat had just saved my life."

This wakeup call by Pudding allowed Ethan to come to the rescue of his mother and phone in for the help she desperately needed.  Pudding sat obediently by his owners' side as Ethan called his dad and was walked through the steps of administering an injection in his mother's leg.

The next morning, with Jung fully recovered from the seizure, she immediately phoned the shelter to inquire if Pudding had any rescue experience or training that enabled him to perform such a heroic act.  After finding that there was no record of such training, Jung knew immediately that Pudding had found his calling and that same day registered him as a service animal.  Pudding is now able to detect when her blood sugar drops even just two points below normal and alerts her when something is wrong through his meows and nibbles.  Direct from doctor's orders, Pudding now follows Jung wherever she goes including her work at the local flower shop where he roams free but is never too far apart from his owner.

"To this day, Pudding isn't aware of how his actions so greatly impacted my life and family. How do you show enough gratitude to an animal you owe your life to?" said Jung.  "I am hopeful that Pudding's story makes people realize that shelters hold amazing beings and there is always an option to expand your family and heart by adopting."
