Meet the cat who rescued a tourist lost in the Swiss Alps

There are those who say cats cannot be relied upon because they’re only out for themselves.

But the tale of a Hungarian hiker has poured scorn on such suggestions. For it was a friendly feline in the Swiss resort of Gimmelwald that led him from the mountains to safety when he suffered a sprained ankle and lost his way.

The Reddit user, known only as sc4s2cg, happened upon the black and white cat when exploring the Bernese Oberland. He was unsure how to get back to his hostel after finding that the only trail back had been closed.

“[The cat] was just wandering around, [then] found me while I was resting from a hike,” the traveller said.

    “Follow me dumb ass, I’ll bring you to safety” – that cat, probably.

    So nobody gonna ask why a cat was at the top of a fucken mountain in the first place?

    Maybe it was checking behind wondering why a random man was following it while it went about its business. Incidentally, it was heading down the mountain anyway.

    Cat was hungry, found a human, and lured human to follow cat so human can give cat food

    In 2017 a little Border Collie guided my wife and I on a hike back to town then left us at the pub.

    man absolutely hated his wife’s cat and decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park. as he was getting home, the cat was walking up the driveway.

    the next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. he put the beast out and headed home. driving back up his driveway, there was the cat! he kept taking the cat further and further and the cat would always beat him home.

    at last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the cat there.

    hours later the man calls home to his wife: “Jen, is the cat there?” “yes”, the wife answers, “why do you ask?”

    man: “put son of a bitch on the phone, I’m lost and need directions”

    ….cat: >!”I’m at the house and I’m in your room, a few wrong turns and you’ll be dead soon”!<

    If it was a dog, it’s thought would have been

    “Oh poor hooman. I must save you! Dont worry, I keep you safe! Follow the good boi!”

    The cat probably thought

    “You stupid fuck I guess I have to save your dumb ass. Follow me. You clueless humans I swear….”

    For whatever reason I read the title as “made sure the man wasn’t left handed”
