4. Ironic you say that because Othello

Literally saved my life.

I was in a stupor from undiagnosed diabeties. I was laying in bed because I assumed I was tired.

As I layed there I felt worse and worse and it felt like I was passing in and out,strange thoughts and dreams ,brain fog.

Then Othello jumped on the bed. I have no idea how long he was there. He began to jump on my chest with all 4 paws,I barely woke,usually a cat jumping on your chest with all 4 paws would wake me up fast,and it hurt.

Than he'd sniff my breath. He knew my breath was different because of diabeties.

But I was in a stupor not sure if it was a dream. He did this for who knows how long.

Than I woke up more and realized what was happening. I realized I was in some kind of stupor because he was jumping on my chest and it was really sore. And I didn't wake up.. felt everything spin and I knew setting was wrong with me.

I called 911.

Was taken to the ER and admitted to the stroke unit. I had no idea what was happening until after a few days.

So,Othello literally saves my life. So he is my world and my heart.

I'd probably be dead if not for him as I live alone.
