Cat memes and humorous cat videos are popular in today’s society, but these furry friends don’t seem to mind raising their status in our minds even higher. This time, one of their kind decided to stare death in the eyes. A pet cat guarded a house in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, as a deadly cobra lurked right in front of it. The brave cat did not allow the snake to enter the house until snake helpline workers arrived to capture and transport the snake back to its natural habitat..
The white cat was caught alert in front of the home in a photo provided by news agency ANI, while the cobra with its spread hood waited in front of it. While residents waited for snake helpline staff to arrive, the cat stood watch for half an hour. It was quite an achievement for the cat, given cobras are known to attack cats in certain circumstances. A resident of the residence, Sampath K Parida, stated that their cat is only one-and-a-half years old. Mr Parida continued, “It lives with us like a family member.”
