When Karen Turner’s cat went missing, she feared the worse. Then she spotted the body of a black cat with four white hairs on its chest, just like her cat Sammy. Grief-stricken, she took this dead cat and buried it in her father’s yard. Then she went home.

The next day, to her surprise, Sammy showed up at the door, scratching to get in. That meant Karen Turner had buried someone else’s cat. Later she spotted a missing cat ad and helped the owner find the cat she had buried. While it’s sad that this other cat died, it’s nice to know that Sammy is still alive after all.
