An X-boyfriend ad I were visiting his family in Poland and had traveled to Sopot from Lemborg (in N. Poland, near the Baltic Sea) to visit with a childhood friend of his. We were walking along the sidewalk from the train towards where his friend was staying at a motel. It was in September and there a was a nip in the air, so we were walking pretty briskly. Both of us just happen to look down at the same time to this black cat, weaving around our legs and meowing the SAME EXACT meow of this little black cat we had just recently had given to my young daughter. She was saying with her father (whom I had divorced.) while I was on holiday in Poland. (and she was in school.) Her father was quite allergic to the cat's dander and the poor thing was forced to stay in the enclosed garage. (It is still fairly warm in Utah in September.)
My X and I had been particularly attached to this cat, as we had saved it from some man kids and hd had her for quite some time. Czarna had been a loving and lovable cat, coming up to us for kisses and hug.
An here we were, walking on a sidewalk thousands of miles away, and here was our cat. Now, you might think that a lot of cats look alike, it could have been just another black cat with yellow eyes.....except, our Czarna had had her tail broken by these mean kids, and it bent in this crooked angle, right about 3 inches from the tip of her tail....and this black cat at out feet had EXACTLY the same brake in its tail, in exactly the same spot.
The cat was meowing at us and purring loudly. We looked at one another and then looked down, and the black cat was gone.
When we returned to the states about a week later, my daughter tearful explained that Czarna had run away. My ex-husband pulled me aside and told me he thought he had seen a hit cat on the side of the road that looked like it had been Czarna.
to this day, that Czarna came to Poland to say goodbye to my X and
