Stray Cat

Mrs. V had just buried her cat in the back yard. She sat down beside the grave, lowered her head and cried. Soon she felt something on her leg and looked up to see a kitten pawing at her. The kitten seemed to have come from nowhere and showed every intention of staying. In what seemed to be divine intervention, the spirit of her cat was revived in a kitten. Indeed he stayed. She named him S.C. for Stray Cat.

S.C. remained her faithful pet until he became ill and was put to sleep just shy of 12 years old. Many pets offer comfort to those in distress but it is rare for one so young to look for a chance to mend a broken heart.
