I think I probably speak for many of us when I say that the thought of being separated from my cats at some point in my life is just about the worst scenario I can imagine. When Nancy Cohen of Westcott, England, was forced to move into a nursing home, her family left her cat Cleo in the care of neighbors. About two weeks after Cohen moved into the nursing home, staff began to notice a friendly grey and white cat hanging around the property. The staff started feeding her. A few weeks later, Cohen saw the cat and remarked to staff that she had a striking resemblance to her Cleo. “One day Nancy said ‘Oh, she looks just like my cat, Cleo. But my Cleo had lost most of her tail,’ said a nursing home staff member. “So we checked, and the cat was missing most of her tail.” Cleo has been invited to stay with Cohen full time.
