Two children are playing in the garden
Without the intervention and bravery of this cat, the child could have succumbed to the snakebite in just a few minutes.
A hero cat sacrificed the last of his nine lives to save the children of his humans. He was the one who was bitten by Australia’s most dangerous snake.
The cat did not hesitate a single second to act
“Heroes are in our lives in all shapes and sizes! »Said the veterinary clinic in a Facebook post paying tribute to Arthur, this hero cat.
The adorable Shorthair was playing with his family in the garden when a brown snake rippled towards the younger child.
Arthur didn’t hesitate to act and he jumped on the snake to kill it immediately.
No one notices that the cat has been bitten
In the rush that followed the attack to get the children out of harm’s way, Arthur’s parents and handlers failed to notice that the cat had been bitten by the snake.
Arthur passed out, but quickly regained his senses as if nothing had happened. His owners were reassured to see him act as usual.
Alas Arthur passed out again the next day, so this time his owners immediately took him to the veterinary emergency room in Tanawha.
Unfortunately the venom was taking Arthur away and he was too late for him to heal.
His family is devastated by the loss of their little hero. They didn’t want to leave his bedside in the hospital.
The brown snake is the most poisonous land snake in the world just after the Desert Taipan (Oxyuranus microlepidotus). Its venom causes progressive paralysis and prevents blood from circulating. Its victims can collapse in a matter of minutes.
