Wendy Humphreys of Wroughton, England, was puzzled when her amazing cat Fidge jumped on her right breast every night for two weeks, and remained there while Humphreys lay on the sofa watching television.
No hesitation at all. I was told that if I hadn't been diagnosed when I was I could have died because of the hormones.
But what seemed like a random act of kitty quirkiness turned out to be Fidge’s attempt to alert Humphreys of a serious health threat.
"She would jump onto it every night for a fortnight, Humphreys told the Daily Mail. "I went to see my GP because I thought it was bruised. It just hurt and I didn't think anything else could be wrong."
The 52-year-old mother of two was shocked by the doctor’s discovery: she had a pea-sized lump in her breast. Tests revealed the lump was malignant.
