Seeing Eye Cat for a Dog

Most people know of dogs that help blind people who cannot see. An unusual situation made headlines recently of a very different scenario. A stray cat affectionately called “Pwditat” showed up at the home of a blind dog named “Terfel”. Terfel has cataracts covering his eyes that causes the blindness. The sixth sense of animals has been known for a long time. The owner’s of the dog and cat were still surprised when the cat immediately could tell that the dog needed its help. Pwditat is the dog’s new guide now. Every where that the dog goes, the cat follows along, nudging him in the right direction away from harm and objects that he might accidentally walk in to. Members of the Skout network have witnessed the pair have become inseparable friends who curl up together at night to sleep. The owner’s can’t believe it since usually cats and dogs never get along. The cat’s help has given Terfel new freedom and a new lease on life.
