Family cat takes a bullet that saves their 3 year old son's life
We’ve all heard that cats have nine lives and Opie is no exception. Early Thursday morning a stray bullet went through a window in Angelica Sipe’s home. “It took me a second to realize what just happened. The first thing I did was check on my son and he was sound asleep. Then I saw my cat on the floor and that’s when I realized my cat was shot,” said Sipe.
The bullet went in the couch and then hit Opie, who was laying there. “It came in the top of his head, out the bottom of his neck, and back into his shoulder and out his armpit rib area,” said Sipe. And it didn’t stop there. The bullet ricocheted. Bullet holes in Sipe’s couch show where it hit the couch that Sipe was sleeping on, then it flew across the room to a love seat and lodged in a pillow, just inches from her 3-year old son Daemire.
“It could have been my son,” said Sipe as she teared up. She is convinced Opie saved her son by taking the bullet, and she knew she had to save his life too.
