Cat saves owner from cancer [Positively Amazing]

leave a comment »

This was no ordinary CAT scan.

But Lionel Adams believes it saved his life.

Now recovering from surgery to remove cancer from his lung, Adams, 59, is crediting his eight-year-old feline friend Tiger for alerting him and his family doctor to a mass in his lung.

“He would climb into bed and take his paw and drag it down my left side — he was adamant there was something there,” he said.

“And it was right where the cancer was.”

And now Adams is heralding Tiger as a hero for saving his life.

“I think if he hadn’t done the pawing part it could have gone on for another five, six months undetected,” he said.

“I would say he’s my hero.”
