My Special Cats That Saved Me From Getting Hurt

My Special Cats That Saved Me From Getting Hurt

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

I was five at the time and me and my black cat Big Ben were in the garden then suddenly the bushes rustled and a badger jumped out!

I got scared and hid but I watched Big Ben step up to the badger... Then this was when I ran off grabbed a stick and threw it at the badger then it chased me four times then Big Ben pins the badger like always but this time I run inside the house and wait till its over.

Then I ran out hearing no yowling or screeching and I see Big Ben dead on the bushes of roses...

And here is my second cat that died not too long ago to save me... I was outside looking for my favorite cat Prince Charming but he wasn't anywhere around the farm. I looked and looked then I heard a screech a yowl and a "CHIP CHEE!"

I didn't know what was happening till I got there I saw a badger dead a cat dead and a giant hawk dead. ( no idea where the hawk came from...)

Then I notice it is Prince Charming and Big Fat Killer and a hawk I know Snowball he was a wild hawk I befriended... and the badger killed Big Ben and is now dead and Prince Charming and Big Ben I hope are in heaven.

I am nine years old now but I'm still sad I love my cats...

Smart little girl
by: Ruth (Monty's Mom)

I was thinking more about your story and I have to commend you for your good sense to just get away and not try to intervene when your cat was fighting with the badger. I would probably have tried to save the cat and gotten hurt myself. I don't know if a badger could kill an adult human, but I know my dad felt one could definitely kill a child. You were smart and it saved your life or at least spared you a long stay in the hospital.

Could your mom and dad put a fence around your yard? I have an 8 foot high fence that keeps Monty safe. I live in the city, so it's for protection from dogs and to keep him from being able to go into the street-- though we do get coyotes and foxes around here. Michael has also written about "catios"-- a safe enclosure for cats so they can be outside. Of course if you have badgers you probably also have bears and I know they will break through fences. A Wisconsin man recently shot a bear that was breaking into the pen where his pigs were kept. He might have to go to jail for doing that since the bear was only going after the pigs and not directly threatening any humans.

People on this site write a lot about living in harmony with nature and not killing or hunting any animals. But I hear of people up north having bears come into their yards where their children are playing. It gets harder to live in harmony with nature when there are wild animals about who could kill the ones you love. I try to put myself in their shoes and think about how frightening that would be, especially for a parent.
Your cat loved you and did what a lot of parents will do when the person they love the most is threatened-- take on the wild animal to protect them. There is a video on YouTube of a cat actually scaring away a bear. The people taking the video were laughing, and I didn't like that, because although the bear ran away the cat could have gotten hurt. The problem in your situation is that a badger will never run away or back down to any other animal, so your poor kitty didn't have a chance even though she seemed to have the upper hand initially, or so it seems from your description. Any other animal would have backed down at the ferocity of your cat's attack-- ferocious because she was protecting the thing she loved the most. You.

Be safe out there!

Badgers never give up
by: Ruth (Monty's Mom)

I live in Wisconsin, the "Badger State." I feel sorry for you that you list your precious kitties. My dad always told my sister and I (when we were kids) that if we ever saw a badger we should just get away because a badger will always fight to the death and it will never give up. Please be careful!

We have Bucky Badger as a sport's team mascot here, and I do think he's the best mascot ever. There are companies that put Bucky on their packaging to sell things, and it does work on me. I keep buying these Bucky Badger pretzels, and honestly, they aren't that good, but they have a picture of Bucky Badger on the bag so I buy them!

I could understand why you would NOT be a fan of Bucky. I hope in the future you and your kitties will be safe.

Special friends
by: Leah

Hello

Thank you so much for telling us about your special cat friends, they must have loved you very much to protect you.

I know you loved them but you won't feel sad forever, you'll look back when you are older and laugh at some of of the funny things they did before the Badger came along and they went to heaven.

Sad
by: Michael

Hi....I found your story sad. You must live in country where wild animals are a danger to domestic cats. I live in the city so that problem doesn't exist.

You miss your cats a lot. You'll always remember them and how they died.

Good luck and thanks for visiting and sharing.
