My Maine Coon cat Whiskers was a kitten when we found him. Well, I guess you could say he found us. He came up from the ditch we live by and we were able to tame him. He never left except one time he was missing for six months. My mom said he is probably dead. But I never stoped believing.
One night I had a dream that he came home and the next day he did. He came across First Av. half starved to death.
We got him healthy again and he has not left our neighborhood any more but we think someone took him home because he was tame enough.
So now I call him my miracle cat!!!
