A brave cat is being hailed a hero for finding his injured brother and taking him to safety.
Hamish, a one-year-old black cat, was struck by a vehicle, and he ran away from the scene injured. A neighbor contacted Hamish’s owners, and the family went on an extensive search to find Hamish. After 12 hours of trying to find their lost cat, the family had to stop their searching for the night.
The next morning, Hamish’s brother, Guinness, also a black cat, went out to try and find Hamish. Guinness found his injured sibling and dragged him back home just an hour later.
Hamish was rushed to the vet and underwent surgery and is now back at home.
More on Hamish and Guinness after the jump.
From Dorset Echo:
Tony Flett [the cats’ owner], 30, a marine, said: “The cat not only found his brother but dragged him home so that we could help him as the injured cat had a broken pelvis and back.”I’m a marine and if you did that you would get a medal,” he added, “This is a really heart-warming story and one of courage by two cats.”
Guinness, you truly are an amazing and heroic cat. You definitely deserve a medal and a great big hug. Well done!
