    Cat named Pudding rescues owner hours after his adoption

    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 he’s 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 hadn’t pulled me out of that, I wouldn’t be here,” Jung told the Green Bay Press-Gazette newspaper.
     
    Here’s 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.
     
    That evening Jung, who has been living with diabetes since the age of 4, went to bed at about 9:30 p.m. About 90 minutes later, she started to have a diabetic seizure. That’s when, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, “Pudding planted his weight on her chest and, when he could not wake her, began swatting her face and biting her nose.”
