My Guardian Angel Is my Old Cat


When I was about nine, we had to get our cat Jess put down. He had this disease where he was losing all his white bloods cells which by the way help to fight sickness and heal wounds. He got it because he was bitten by another cat. We were all really sad and after we buried him, I wished I could see him one last time. Then a few months later, I was sleeping in my mum's room because dad was working overnight. My mum was asleep but I was wide awake. I heard a purr just like Jess coming from under the bed but I didn't dare look.

Two weeks later, I was down by the garden putting daises on Jess' grave. I finished and was walking back up when I heard a meaow. I glanced over my shoulder and there, walking after me, was Jess. I wasn't sure I saw right but when I looked back, he was gone.

A week later, my auntie came to our house with a new kitten. It had black and white fur and looked JUST LIKE JESS. It was like Jess had sent him down from heaven. I immediately burst into tears. I knew then and there that Jess was up in heaven looking after me! I am 13 now and my cat Sox looks even more like Jess than ever, except for being a little smaller.

I always get the feeling Jess is watching me. At least I got my wish and I feel like with Sox it will last forever!

Thanks for sharing your story Lucy. First off I just want to say that I believe that Jess, might have been reicarnated into that kitten, or maybe even put that kitten in your aunt's way to give it to you. By you saying that Sox looking so much like Jess, then I bet it is Jess, not in his form but Sox's form. I know this might sound weird, but have you ever mentioned Jess's name around Sox to see how Sox acts? Maybe Sox can give you some kind of sign if he is really Jess or not. Then again Jess could have sent Sox to you to let you know that you can be happy and that he loves you.
Sorry for a long comment. 😊

Hiya, Touching story, I have experienced simular with 2 of my cats that died. And I do believe your cats soul could re-incarnated to your kitten because the brother of one of my dead cats has started showing VERY simular characteristics to his dead sister when he was nothing like her when she was alive! Quite weird sometimes. Anyhoo I wish you all the luck with your new kitten!

This is a wonderful story.

I am almost certain that your cat Jess has been reincarnated into Sox - it's happened before with pets that I have owned. It is a very special thing to know that your cat loved you so much to return to you and keep looking after you, even after death.

Cherish and love Sox for as long as you two have together.

You'll always have a gaurdian now.

In honor, Native Spirit, Samuel.
