  • The story I want to share today is a story that many people will not be able to believe. I write for the ones who understand that it is a very deep connection between animals and man.
    I was in to Cape Town two and a half years ago. My cat Henry always sleeps with me, but for a month he slept in a different position .He was all night over my stomach on my right side on the lower part. I thought it was strange but like a soldier on duty every night he came to the same spot and stayed there until early hours of the morning.
    I had to visit my gynaecologist as a routine check up. He found a very big tumour on my right lover side of my stomach in the same place that Henry slept for a month. The doctors told me I had to take it out immediately and I had to be prepared for the worst. They told me If it was cancer and they were sure it was I have to have everything removed and start with radiation and chemiotherapy.I felt I was not in a real world but I was. I had the surgery a week later and the doctors were so surprised that is was not cancer. The size was very big. I went home two days later and I started my recovery. A week after this, Henry became very ill. He was vomiting and the vet told me that probably were furballs, but something told me It was something else. The vet did an scan on him and many other tests and found out he had a tumour in the same part I had mine. I was spechless.It could not be a coincidence. Henry has been treated for two and a half years with radiation and chemiotherapy.I and he still is happy beautiful and a real fighter. The vet calls him the miracle cat. I talk to him sometimes and I ask him what is the secret of his strength in facing such a big challenge. I want to know, I want to learn because we normally are so weak in the face of small tests. He is a real miracle and I am blessed to have him in my life
