Rescue cat saves owner's life countless times by biting his toes when he has deadly seizures
He rescued this cat, and now the cat rescues him on a daily basis.
Glen Schallman suffers from three separate brain diseases, the combination of which cause frequent seizures. Obviously, seizures are always dangerous, but when they occur while a person is sleeping, they can interfere with breathing and quickly turn deadly.
Luckily for Glen, he now has a furry safeguard against that worst-case scenario!

Glen adopted his one-year-old black cat from a PetSmart in Fort Worth, Texas. And though little Blake has never received any formal training, he now acts as a bona fide therapy animal, biting Glen's toes to wake him up whenever a seizure occurs at night.
What’s more, the cat has also reportedly developed the ability to sense when a seizure is about to come on!
Schallman is now believed to be the oldest living person with his rare combination of brain conditions, thanks in no small part to his loving companion Blake, whom he once rescued at an adoption event and is now rescuing him back on a daily basis.
