Adopted Senior Cat Keeps Owner Safe from Blackouts

Lunar helps Ali from having blackouts

There are all sorts of theories as to why cats seem to have a special talent for getting in the way of their people. According to the Eastern Daily Press, Lunar, a gray cat in Norfolk, UK, does it to protect her owner, Ali Coles, from dangerous blackouts.

Ali Coles adopted 13-year-old Lunar from Cats Protection in October 2016. Ali shared with Eastern Daily Press that she uses a wheelchair. When Ali noticed that Lunar regularly got in her way when Ali needed to stand, the 29-year-old “thought she was just being annoying,” Ali said. However, that soon changed. Ali told reporters that “I realized she’d do it [before] every time I fainted.”

Ali described it further, saying “Whenever I’m about to suffer a blackout, Lunar will come and sit on me in such a way that I can’t stand up. Or if I’m already standing up, she will stand on my feet and refuse to move.” Lunar’s perceptive actions prepare Ali for the blackout. Ali explained, “If I’m sitting or lying down, then I’m less likely to injure myself when I black out.”
