Lilly the cat is a life-saver, for she can sense its owner is about to have epileptic fit and thereby alert the family.
Lilly can detect the fits her owner Nathan Cooper suffers on a weekly basis before they happen, and alert the college student's parents.
"Normally she's a quiet little thing, but when Nathan has a fit she starts running up and down the stairs, miaowing at the top of her voice," the Daily Mail quoted the 19-year-old's mother Tracey as saying.
The family, who live in Bournemouth, have had 14-month-old Lilly for barely a year, but the 38-year-old mother, believes the pet has already saved her son's life at least once.
She said, "After one fit, Nathan stopped breathing, and Lilly was really worried. Then she started licking his mouth, and somehow it kickstarted his breathing. Now she won't leave his side."
