“The cat has prevented the cobra from entering for almost 30 minutes, until the snake help line arrived at the scene. Our cat is around 2 years old and lives with us as a member of the family ”, he revealed regarding the great act of protecting his pet.
In the description of the video that reached more than 14,500 likes and almost 2,000 retweets in Twitter It reads: “Dogs protect, but cats rule … anyone who is a danger to their kingdom experiences their wrath.”
The networks were filled with messages in support of the cat’s bravery and highlighted that although there are those who believe that dogs are better companions for man, having this cat saved the family from a great scare. Without a doubt, it has been a great act of courage that not just anyone would have done. “A great brave”, “More courage than a dog”, “A great hairy guardian” and “more efficient than any security mechanism” were some of the comments from Internet users.
It should be noted that in India, the place where the event occurred, it is very common to find this type of snake. Although this story had a happy ending, the animal could have been in danger if the cobra’s reaction had been different, since in its defense mechanism they usually attack their threat.
