The cat stood guarding the house for half an hour before snake helpline workers reached the spot.
The world today is full of fans of cat memes and funny cat videos – but these fur-balls don’t seem to hesitate to up their status in our minds a level further. This time one of their kinds took to looking death right in the face. A pet cat in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, stood guarding a house while a menacing cobra lurked right in front of it. The daredevil cat did not give the snake any chance to enter the house till snake helpline workers reached the place to catch and transport the snake back to its natural habitat.
In the picture shared by news agency ANI, the white cat was photographed sitting alert in front of the house while the cobra with its spread hood waited in front of it. The cat stood guard for half an hour while locals waited for snake helpline workers to arrive. It was quite a feat for the cat as cobras are known to attack cats if conditions call for it. Sampath K Parida, a resident of the house, said that their cat is only one-and-a-half years old. “It lives with us like a family member,” Mr Parida added.
