(UnitedVoice.com) – There’s a popular old saying about a dog being man’s best friend. Cats, on the other hand, are generally known as no-nonsense animals that want their owner (or strangers) to feed them and leave them alone. However, for one woman, it was a feline who saved her life.
An 83-year-old woman in Cornwall, England, was walking near her home when she fell 70 feet into a steep ravine. Piran, her black cat, stayed near the spot where the woman fell and meowed relentlessly until a neighbor, who was helping search crews, noticed.
Thanks to the cat’s cries, searchers located the woman and lifted her out of the ravine on a stretcher. They took her to a hospital where doctors listed her in stable condition. Rescuers called Piran a hero.

This incident isn’t the first time a feline has saved someone. A California cat saved a toddler from a dog attack several years ago. People began calling the animal “Super Cat.”
Another cat, named Fluffy, saved a man’s life after a bad fall. Then, there was the feline who prevented a baby from falling down a set of stairs. There are dozens of stories like these across the internet proving that maybe, just maybe, cats are man’s real best friend.
