Heroic Cat Saves Owner from Heart Attack by Pounding Paws on Her Chest.

During the early hours of Aug. 8, Sam Felstead, 42, suffered a heart attack while sleeping at home in Nottinghamshire, England.

Her 7-year-old cat, Billy, seemingly noticed a change in his owner.

and began jumping on Felstead's chest and meowing as loud as he could.

With her cat Billy's efforts, Felstead woke up, realized she could not move on her right side.

and asked her mother Karen to help her get to a hospital.

"Mum was quite shocked. I told her [Billy] woke me up and she was even more shocked."Felstead said.

"The doctors said it was a good job I got to hospital in time," she added.

Felstead stayed in the hospital for three days and underwent an angioplasty.

Now on heart medication, she's back to work as a receptionist at Queen's Medical Center in Nottingham.
