Two years ago, their neighbour and their eight kids moved. Moving is a trying time for us humans, but their cat, Bruiser, got so spooked that it took off, and they weren’t able to find it. Danny said not to worry, he would keep an eye out for it, and would put out food so that it wouldn’t go hungry.
The neighbour would check back with him every so often, but when there was no cat to be found, had given up hope of ever seeing their pet again.
Danny loves animals He fed a raccoon and her yearly family for many years, until now she has gone on.
He would see Bruiser in the bush but it wouldn’t come near him or his wife, Jean. They kept putting food out, daily, and it would disappear. Finally about two or three months ago, it started coming while they were outside, and eventually allowed them to pet it. It was starving for affection!
Danny and Jean were able to take it inside, and the cat was very affectionate, craving their human touch. Danny figured it was time to phone the old neighbour, but had lost the phone number! He called one of the other neighbours, got it, and called the owners. They could hardly believe their ears.
They came to get it today, expecting to see an eleven-year-old scrawny cat, but it was fat and healthy. There were a lot of tears shed today as that cat returned home… a lot of them were Danny’s and Jean’s as they had bonded with this guy. They cried over the two years it had spent alone, craving affection… but, for sure, it will get plenty of that now from eight kids and their grateful parents.
What an awesome ending for the two families, and their cat.
