Blind dog gets help from guide cat
Stray kitty is dog’s best friend.
Pwditat seemed to know Terfel could use his help. The cat showed up at Judy Godfrey-Brown's door in Wales four years ago, and headed straight for her 8-year-old dog, who had lost his sight due to cataracts.
"He ignored everybody and went straight for my blind dog and started loving him," Godfrey-Brown told People.
"He realized something was different about the dog” and wanted to help.
Pwditat uses his paws to help lead his canine pal on walks outside. The two are now living at a local cattery while Godfrey-Brown recovers from surgery, and their inspiring relationship has made headlines all over the U.K. in recent weeks.
