The cat showed the police the way to save an 83 year old woman trapped in a ravine

It’s always great to have a loyal pet by your side. Animals have great instincts and can jump into action to help you if you get into an emergency situation. Like one smart cat, who has been credited with saving the life of his 83-year-old owner after she fell into a ravine.

On August 14, the Bodmin Police, in England, began a search for an elderly woman who had gone missing in the area. But it didn’t take long until they had a breakthrough, thanks to an unlikely source. A local woman reportedly heard a cat incessantly meowing at the corner of a large maize field.

Soon, the neighbor realized that the cat, named Piran, belonged to the missing woman — and was trying to alert her of her whereabouts. It turns out the 83-year-old had fallen deep into an embankment in the field near her home.

“The elderly female had fallen approximately 70ft down a very steep embankment, with incredibly difficult access and uneven terrain,” Bodmin Police wrote. With the missing woman finally located, Bodmin Police and Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service quickly came to the rescue to get her out of the ravine.

After she was lifted out, Cornwall Air Ambulance flew her to the hospital. She was reportedly in stable condition, and according to an update is “in good spirits” while she continues to receive care.

“It’s a massive ‘well done’ to all the emergency services who worked together and to Piran,” the anonymous neighbor told BBC. “The outcome could have been a lot worse.”

While emergency responders actually did the rescuing, Piran deserves a lot of credit for saving his owner’s life. Considering the woman’s age, and how out-of-sight she was from the rescuers, it’s easy to imagine how things could’ve gone much differently if the cat wasn’t so alert.
