Brave Cat Dies While Protecting Queensland Children From Deadly Snake Attack

Brave Cat Dies While Protecting Queensland Children From Deadly Snake Attack

A brave family cat has come to the rescue of children in Queensland after they were threatened by a deadly snake.

Arthur was playing around with his owners on the Sunshine Coast and leapt into action when he noticed the Eastern Brown snake come into the garden.

The feline protected the two young children from the reptile by standing between them.

The Queensland veterinarian Animal Emergency Service Facebook page explained that during this standoff, Arthur managed to kill the Eastern Brown, but not before it hit him with a 'fatal envenomation snake bite'.

It wasn't until the next day that the family noticed Arthur had collapsed, which is a 'common symptom of snake bites, although not a well-known symptom amongst pet owners.'

They rushed the cat to the vet and that's when experts delivered the heartbreaking news.

"An Eastern Brown Snake, one of Australia's top 10 highly venomous snakes, had entered the backyard right where the children were playing," the Animal Emergency Service team wrote on social media.

"Unfortunately, Arthur's symptoms were too severe to recover. It was with the heaviest of hearts his owners had to leave Arthur after he gained his angel wings.

"His family, understandably devastated, remember him fondly and are forever grateful he saved the children's lives."

Poor Arthur, what an absolute legend!
