Stray Cat Gets Woman's Attention To Show Her What She's Protecting.

The sound was a high-pitched wail that grew increasingly distressed. To Irina, it was an unmistakable sound: it was a cat meowing. Immediately she became concerned. In all her time knowing and caring for Masha, she had rarely heard her meow like that. Perhaps it was another cat? But that was unlikely, as Masha was quite territorial so no other cats roamed the old woman’s neighborhood. Determined to solve the mystery, Irina set out to find the source of the meowing.

Animals can’t communicate with words, but they can convey their emotions using facial gestures and sounds. So, when Irina heard a distressful meow in the distance, she knew that it was Masha. She was so familiar with her, that the second she heard those sounds, she knew she was in trouble. But what could’ve possibly happened to her? Was she attacked? Irina had to find her and see what had left Masha in such a state of distress.

Irina turned around and followed the meowing, trying to figure out where it was coming from. The sound took her around her building and into the back alleys. As she rounded the corner, she spotted the conspicuous long-haired tabby coat of Masha. The cat, however, didn’t come to the woman--she stayed put. Irina feared the worst. “She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself,” she recalls. Then she came closer and saw something that made her jaw drop.

Masha would come to Irina right away if she could, but it was obvious that she couldn’t. Something was wrong with her little ball of fur. The kitty made no attempts to approach her. She didn’t even move from her spot. Irina figured that something horrible had happened to her. This was the only thing that would explain why Masha was ignoring her.

Masha was inside a cardboard box, which Irina didn’t find odd at that moment. Masha loved sitting in boxes and the old woman put out a few for her every once in a while. But as she got closer, Irina realized Masha was not alone inside that box. There was another creature in there with her, and the woman almost fainted when she discovered what it was.
