Leo

by Alazanto, Kevin Davis

Note: One of the most wonderful things in Kevin’s life was Leo. When he was so sick he could hardly move, Leo was brought to the hospital in Poughkeepsie. Kevin was wheeled to the first floor in a wheel chair. There was no expectation that he would be able to go home again at that point, although that turned out not to be true. The minute he saw Leo Kevin surprised everyone by getting out of the wheelchair and getting on the floor with his cat. Leo crawled up next to him and spent the next hour taking care of the person who had rescued him on a cold day when he was a kitten and taken him into his human life.

    Wow. What a beautiful story about the sheer power of love. So bittersweet…so sad…so moving. Love is truly miraculous in its bonds and in its power. Your story puts a lump in my throat. This reminds me of this:

    Hugs to you.

  6. This is so touching, Thomas – it brought tears to my eyes. I’m deeply moved, thank you.

    Hi Thomas, like Betty I got tears in my eyes, this is very touching. And what a fantastic hospital to allow Leo there! This must have meant a lot to your son. Cats and us humans have a bond.

  8. Heart-warming I know what I would write if is wasn’t plagiarism. (See Betty’s comment.)

  10. This is the most beautiful aspect of Kevin’s life you have shared here, as far as I am concerned. These dear animals truly know loyalty and love, do they not?

  12. I was trembling as I read your reflection on the relationship between Kevin and Leo…I have such bonds with my cats…and something like this reaches into my heart as very few other experiences of love have.

    It it obvious that Leo inspired an energy in Kevin that was well beyond his physical existence…

  13. A beautiful, wonderful story it is often surprising how much our animal friends know and how much they can help. Thank you for sharing.
