Heroic Cat Took On A Deadly Rattlesnake To Save A Girl's Life

Oreo the cat is down to just eight lives after rescuing his "big sister" from a deadly predator.

The fierce feline was raised by 10-year-old Jaiden Peterson from Orlando, Florida since he was a kitten. That gave the pair an unbreakable bond, and the cat is so close with Jaiden that her family used to call her Oreo's "big sister." But from now on, they're calling Oreo her guardian angel.

"It's not just Jaiden that has such a strong bond, although she is the closest," her grandmother Cyndi Anderson told LoveMeow. "It's the whole family. He seems to watch over everyone in strange, inexplicable ways, including the eleven-month-old human sister. He seems to be wise beyond his years."

She also describes him as "loyal beyond loyal," explaining that Oreo never lets Jaiden or her siblings out of his sight, and that he even sleeps next to her at night. In fact, Oreo is more like a guard dog than a pet cat, and that came in handy when an eastern diamondback rattlesnake crept up on Jaiden.

The young girl was playing outside with her siblings when she noticed Oreo was acting strange. That's when her beloved pet stepped between her and the snake.
