Hero Pets: The Lifesaving Kitty (1/3)

The Jung family adopted a new family pet one winter—and soon discovered it had a lifesaving meow.

When Amy Jung, 36, and her son, Ethan, eight, visited the Door County Humane Society in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin last February, they had no idea that one of the frolicking cats would, within hours, save Amy’s life.

Mother and son weren’t looking for a new pet, but Pudding, an old orange Maine coon mix “owned me the minute our eyes met,” Amy says.
