Adorable cat in black and white dress helps neighbor’s daughter ward off seizures she’s prone to due to illness, reports Plymouth Live.

3 years old, Theodora-Pearl Asten lives in the neighborhood of Chaddlewood at Plymouth, in the South West of England. She has a heart condition called reflex asystolic syncope. It gives rise to seizures and loss of consciousness, especially when it is in a phase of stress or excitement.

For his mother Taya Asten, some banal everyday gestures become real challenges. Like getting the child in and out of the car. Particularly delicate moments when, because she is either too excited or anxious, she risks fainting.

Fortunately, she can count on the neighbours’ cat, who is always there to welcome her when she comes home. He systematically waits for the return of the little girl in the car and hastens to join her to receive hugs from her. By being focused by the animal and thanks to its soothing presence, Theodora-Pearl Asten becomes much calmer and avoids the crisis.
