The British family, Rachel Fitzsimmons, had an intriguing experience to say the least. It all began on May 19, with the disappearance of her kitten, 16-year-old Frankie, leaving the family desperate.
Rachel, her husband and their two children together searched for Frankie everywhere, in the town of Warrington, where they live in England. After a few days of searching, with no trace of the beloved animal, the family was informed that the Highway Agency’s team had found a dead cat on a road and had taken it to a veterinary clinic.
All the characteristics of the cat matched those of the Fitzsimmons animal: “The spots matched him and we lived near the highway, so we were sure it was him,” Rachel said in an interview with the BBC. Professionals tried to make the official identification of the pet through an electronic chip, but this was not possible, due to the seriousness of the injuries.
Certain that the cat was really Frankie, without having much of the pet’s body to identify with, the family followed what their feelings had told them and organized a farewell party for the beloved pet, who was to be cremated.
What seemed like a tough farewell actually turned into a heart-wrenching movie story. A few days passed and only Frankie himself appeared at the door, leaving his parents completely lost.
The cat they mourned and said goodbye there, one piece. “Then he came back, weak and hungry but alive. We are all crying and still in shock! He is so lucky!” declared Rachel.
We’re burning someone else’s cat! “We would like to know which pet we burned,” Frankie’s teacher continued. Despite discovering that the burned cat was not from the family, and without knowing who the real guardians were, the pet’s ashes are still there, as if they were. Known, he was a little animal and deserves all the honors he got, and from time to time he gets a visit from the real Frankie.
