Roy and Bernita Rogers from Kansas City, Missouri, dreamed of having a large family together from the moment they met.
They could easily imagine their life with all those kids running around, calling them mom and dad. But as we already know, things don’t always turn out as we expect.
A couple of years into the marriage the couple experienced through three premature births. This was devastating, but they never lost hope.
Bernita was deeply affected by what happened to her, and she felt the need for some company that would somehow fill the emptiness for her stillborn babies, so she got herself a stray cat.
It was a beautiful black kitten they named Midnight. The cat became a very important part of the family and worked as a miracle because shortly after they adopted her, Bernita got pregnant and the pair welcomed a healthy baby girl into their life.
The lucky parents were over the moon. The new addition to the family made them the happiest people on Earth. They always made sure their baby daughter is happy and healthy and didn’t want to miss any moment of her life so they installed baby monitors in her room.
Needless to say, the little girl and Midnight became best of friends. It was simply stunning how protective the cat was of her human sister.
One day, the parents noticed how the baby wasn’t feeling fine so they brought her at the doctor’s who assured them there was nothing to be worried about because the girl caught a cold.
The parents brought the baby back home and placed her in her room. However, after some time, they noticed strange noises coming from the baby monitor. It was Midnight. Her meowing resembled crying and it worried Roy and Bernita who suspected something wasn’t right and the cat was trying to warn them.
“It was this screech-wail-scream-cry. It was frightening enough that I jumped out of the chair and ran upstairs.“
The worried mom and dad ran into their daughter’s room and saw her struggling to gasp for air.
The parents needed to act really fast as baby Stacey’s skin started turning blue. They rushed her to the ER where they were told how the baby suffered a full respiratory failure.
After Stacey was provided with medical assistance she stated recovering. God didn’t want this loving family to lose their child they so desperately tried to have.
The baby girl was now alive thanks to the brave cat who could sense something bad was happening and knew exactly what to do in order to alert her human parents about the emergency.
The parents said: “For whatever reason, we were given a second chance by the help of a cat to enjoy this child and watch her grow.”
Aren’t cats the best?
