Before I start, I just want to let you know that this is my dad's story. I've only heard it a couple of times. It's not a story that comes up often. This took place a long tome ago I was not born yet.
I'm not sure how old my dad was at the time but he was an adult, and I'm guessing he was almost or around 30 years old at the time. He was doing something at his buddy's house (there were a couple other people but they were inside.) My dad and his friend found a a black cat on the side of the road (maybe it was on the side, I'm not sure), and it was or at least it appeared to be dead, it was hit by a car. They weren't going to leave it there because that's not something you want to see when you drive by, so they moved it so they could bury it.
They didn't check to make sure it was dead before burying it because it looked pretty dead. He said it was all bloody and one of its hind legs was pretty much gone. But they buried it and went inside the house.
A few minutes later there was a noise at the door and they opened the door and what do you know the cat they just buried is alive or at least half alive at the door. They were shocked. My dad's friend decided to take care of it. He "put it out of its misery". He dug a lot deeper of a hole and came back and said, that thing ain't coming back out of the ground this time. And one of the other people in the house (I think it was a woman) was still so shocked he/she asked was that really just buried twice?
So what do you guys think of this? I didn't believe it at first but my dad is not the kind of guy to make up stories like that. Does anyone have a different explanation for this? Have any of you guys who've read this had anything happen like this?
To whom may concern:
Those who think my storie is crazy and fiction, I understand that and I didn't really want to believe either because I love animals and I don't like to think about animals like this story does because it's horrible. I would never make up Astoria like this about animals because I love them and it would be cruel. I would never take the time to write storie like this that would be fake, because it puts images in my head I don't like to see. I had many cats that have died, disappeared and had to be put down for the most horrible things. I have three cats today. And it also puts and image of one of the most horrify things I ever witnessed: When I was 9 I watched my dog get hit by a gas truck will waiting for the school bus, and as he got hit he made the most terrible noise ever. And my last dog had seizure and died 3 years ago. I'm sorry, I don't want to talk about this anymore.
Thanks for the honest opinions though I appreciate it. 😁
