Tabby Cat Warns Owner Of Breast Cancer — 5 Comments

  1. So happy you made a full recovery, but please keep your cats indoors. There are too many dangers out there for these beautiful fur babies.

    • Agreed, Kitty, about keeping our beloveds inside. But, we are in America and the UK has a different point of view. They don’t have the extreme experience of seeing their cats as road kill, poisoned, or abused. But, perhaps, they minimize or are in denial. Who knows?

  2. A former work colleague’s cat also prompted her to have a check up with a doctor. Apparently Dusty, suddenly began sniffing around her left breast and would then hiss and try to bite one particular spot. At first she dismissed it as simply him acting out of character, but he did it every time he came close.

    Thankfully with surgery and chemo she survived breast cancer, but she said she didn’t really feel she’d got the “all clear” until Dusty confirmed it.

    She is convinced that he could smell the cancerous cells and I tend to share that belief. Dogs are being trained to recognise the scent of certain strains of cancer, so there’s no reason why cats wouldn’t also be capable of detecting those same scents? I wonder how animals instinctively seem to know which smells are “bad” ones, even in another species?
