Ethan Fenton, age 5, was bullied by kids when he was playing happily with his brother. Later, one of the older guys slammed the younger boy to the ground.
A cat hero sprung to the boy’s defense and attacked one of the bullies in the chest just as Sarah, Ethan’s mother, tried to intervene. The bullies fled and sobbed after Smudge, Ethan’s cat, performed a brave deed.
Sarah stated, “I heard them yell Ethan’s name twice, but he ignored them. However, after they called him once more, one of the lads walked up to Ethan and said, “Oi! She shoved him back, asking, “Why are you ignoring me?”
As told by the mother, after seeing his owner pushed to the ground, Smudge rushed from underneath the car and hit one of the bullies. Ethan and his mother felt very grateful for their loyal and brave furry fella’s act.
“He has never done anything like that before but it was absolutely brilliant seeing him look out for Ethan like that.” Sarah added. “He has slept outside his bedroom keeping guard ever since it happened.”
People frequently believe that only dogs are loyal to their owners, but this anecdote disproved that notion. Although your cat may not view you as its superior, it does view you as a friend, and friends naturally need to provide a hand from time to time, don’t they?
There are numerous anecdotes of animals and people having a close affinity, many of which are supported by scientific evidence (just do a Google search!). There will come a time when your pet genuinely concerns itself with your well-being. Shout out to Ethan and his pal Smudge because, of course, it takes love, adoration, and a lot of time spent together to reach that stage!
Ethan and his cat, Smudge.
Smudge pounced on the chest of one of the bullies to free his friend.
Since it happened, he has slept outside his bedroom keeping watch.
People often think that only dogs are protective of their owner. However, this story proved otherwise.
Shout out to Ethan and his friend, Smudge!
