Have you ever thought that cats might have a mission on Earth? A Support Cat Wins The National UK Prize
Cats are often seen as distant and occasionally mischievous animals, but there\’s a cat in the UK challenging these stereotypes. Zebby, a 2-year-old black and white feline is assisting his deaf owner with auditory alerts. Whenever the phone or doorbell rings, Zebby gently taps his owner to get her attention. Zebby\’s remarkable behavior has earned him the prestigious title of National Cat of the Year, awarded by Cats Protection.
A Wonderful Support Cat
Genevieve Moss, Zebby\’s \”Mother\”, expressed her deep attachment to him. As she stated to the BBC, she couldn\’t imagine life without him. She was overjoyed by Zebby\’s recognition and proud to showcase how intuitive and compassionate cats can be. Cats\’ impact on people\’s lives can be impressive. Genevieve relies on Zebby because, without her hearing aid, she is unable to hear anything. Zebby\’s role involves alerting her to incoming calls by tapping her and even waking her up during the night if he detects unusual sounds.
What\’s remarkable is that Zebby hasn\’t undergone any special training to provide this support to Genevieve. In addition to his auditory alerts, Zebby assists by collecting mail from the doormat and delivering it to her, or bringing her slippers.
Genevieve shared her unique bond with Zebby, describing how he always stays close to her, wherever she is. She emphasized how crucial this connection is, especially since she lives alone and faces the challenges of deafness. Zebby has become her hero and has brought joy and companionship to her life.
Zebby was chosen as the winner in the Family Fur-ever category of the award, with the public voting for him. Ashley Fryer, the organizer of Cats Protection\’s National Cat Awards, recognized Zebby\’s exceptional devotion to Genevieve, highlighting the strong bond that can exist between people and their cats. Zebby\’s story exemplifies the comfort and happiness that a cat can bring into someone\’s life.
