Did Cat Rise From the Dead?
"Manchester councillor Matt Strong was driving near his home when he saw a Volkswagen Golf slam into a grey tabby cat on the road, killing it instantly.
The driver of the Golf didn`t stop, but Matt pulled over to check on the cat, only to find that its fur and a few tell-tale scars identified it as his own cat, Gus.
Matt sadly buried Gus in his garden, tweeted a heartfelt tribute to his tabby friend, and that was where the story ended.
Until a few hours later, when Gus strolled into Matt`s kitchen very much alive."
This could never happen to me, my cat Tico has unique black spots that make him look like a miniature cow, and not to mention that there`s not many felines that weigh 25 pounds.
I don`t have to worry about Tico getting run over by a car; he`s strictly an indoor cat.
I can imagine the roller coaster of emotions that Strong went through, but all`s well that ends well.
Moral of this story: Cats really don`t have nine lives, keep them indoors.
