A pet cat in Bhubaneshwar saved its owner’s family by standing guard against a cobra for a total of 30 minutes.

The incident occurred in the Bhimatangi area of the city where Sampad Kumar Parida and his family live with their pet cat Chinu.

The male cat, Chinu instantly reacted when the cobra entered the premises of Parida’s house from the backyard on Tuesday, July 20.

Parida followed Chinu and saw that he was standing guard against a four ft long cobra and preventing it from entering the house.

Both the cobra and the cat engaged in a fight, although  Chinu didn’t move an inch from its place.

Parida immediately called Snake Helpline for help.

Arun Kumar Baral, a volunteer from the helpline who reached the spot, found the cat guarding the house and trying to prevent the Cobra from entering inside for nearly 30 minutes.

After shooing the cat away, Arun immediately rescued the cobra.

“The pet cat stood guard to stop the snake till I came to rescue. The fight lasted for half an hour but fortunately, none of them was injured,” Arun said.

Snake Helpline General Secretary Subhendu Mallik informed that they thoroughly checked the body of the cat and found no fang mark.
