Our dear cat Hokkus died five years ago when I was 14. I never got the chance to say goodbye to her because it happened when I was in school. It was a big loss and I cried as I missed her so much. About year after Hokkus passed away, she came back.
I was sleeping when I was suddenly woken up. I felt that something jump on my bed. I got really scared and stared towards the end of my bed where I felt the pressure. While I stared, I felt that something (it was something small) started walk towards me and I saw the imprints when it came closer. Then I heard purring. It sounded so familiar and I realized it was Hokkus, our cat! Her spirit had come back, and I felt how Hokkus walked over the bed next to me, how she pushed the blanket with her paws and purred and purred. Suddenly I had this warm feeling inside me and I became really happy and peaceful. I pressed my head back on the pillow and listened that lovely sound, and fell asleep.
In the morning when I woke up, I still had that warm, peaceful feeling and I knew that Hokkus is now in better place and she's happy, and I don't have to worry about her anymore. She came to me to tell me that and that's one of my most precious memory that I have.
