A Cat Led A Rescue Mission To An Elderly Woman Who Fell Down A Ravine

If you're feline in the mood for a feel-good story, this is it!

An 83-year-old woman's black cat helped save her life recently. His meowing led rescue teams to where she had fallen 70 ft down a ravine.

Who says black cats are bad luck? People can't get enough of this story and want to give the cat all the tuna.

Police in Bodmin, England, were the ones to share the news on Facebook last week.

They wrote that they had been looking for the 83-year-old woman when an interesting development occurred. A "member of the public" had found the owner's cat, a black cat named Piran.

Piran was “meowing in the corner of a large maize field near to her home address.”

This led police to find the woman. “The elderly female had fallen approximately 70 ft down a very steep embankment, with incredibly difficult access and uneven terrain,” police shared on Facebook.

From there, their rescue mission began.

Emergency officials hoisted the woman back up to the field via stretcher and then took her to the hospital to tend to her fall.

Police later updated their post to say that she was still receiving care but "in good spirits" and being well looked after.

“Piran the cat saved the day!” police in Bodmin shared.

They even shared a photo of the rescue kitty himself!

Tamar Longmuir, one of the woman’s neighbors, spoke to Sky News, saying that she and others searched fields in the area for the woman “but there was no sign of her.”

If it wasn't for Piran meowing by the gate, they may not have found her.

"The cat is very attached to her, and he was going back and forth in the gateway and meowing, so I decided to go and search the maize field,” Longmuir said.

At first, she didn't hear any response when she called out for the woman in the area where Piran took her.

"Just as I was going to go off the path and start going through the crop, I heard a very faint response to my calling. ... I then quickly realized my neighbor was down the 70-foot ravine,” Longmuir told Sky News.

"She had gone through the barbed wire and was laying in the stream – we think she had been in there for hours," she added.

Longmuir and her neighbor couldn't be more thankful for Piran's devotion to his owner.

"Without the cat waiting at the gate to that field, it could have been hours later that I or anyone else would have checked in there,” she said.

The reactions on the Police's Facebook page were absolutely purr-fect.

"Well done to everyone on a brilliant recovery and also for kitty for keeping up her crying," wrote one user. "

What a happy ending! The cat is a hero. She might not of been found in time if not for the bond and love of this pet for It's owner! Good job!" added another.

Another wrote that the "dear cat deserves a sardine or two." We're sure Piran would agree with that!

Tamar wrote on the Facebook post that she will definitely be buying Piran some treats. "Thanks to the cat that I found her, she knew she was in there somewhere bless her!"

If you love that story, you might also love this one of a cat who stole the show during a baseball game at Yankee stadium!

The cat got confused and found its way to the middle of the field while the game was going. This interrupted the game while the field crew tried to shoo it off the field.

Here's the video in all of its glory:

"his friend definitely bet him 20 bucks he would do this," the top comment wrote.

These stories prove one thing: cats aren't so bad, after all. Sure, dogs are pretty amazing, but cats can be heroic and make people's days, too!
