Cat Takes Bullet To Save 3-Year-Old's Life
One very special house cat is being hailed a hero today. Opie proves cats truly have nine lives! The day started just like any other for Angelica Sipe. She and her 3-year-old Daemire were having a relaxing morning at home.
The two were laying on the couches when a stray bullet when through the window. It was directly aimed for her son, who was laying on a loveseat across the room. But Opie, their cat, somehow knew it was coming and blocked it.
The bullet went in the couch and then hit Opie. “It came in the top of his head, out the bottom of his neck, and back into his shoulder and out his armpit rib area,” said Sipe. If Opie didn't block it, it would have went right to the boy.
“It could have been my son,” said Sipe as she teared up. She is convinced Opie saved her son by taking the bullet. She did everything she could to make sure he survived. She had to save the life of the cat who saved her son's life. Opie has some muscle damage, he is otherwise expected to be okay!
