Experience description:  

I went to the back of the yard and was feeling rather blue over losing holly...started crying somewhat and then stood up and looked to my right and I saw a cat strangely the same color as my holly...red and white hair. Holly was a golden retriever...the cat took an instant attraction to me and followed me as if it was a dog...I threw a ball and it chased it...The cat snuggled up to me and let me be affectionate to it many times...it was very cute. I actually wanted to take it home but it looked like someone owned it...and I also have sever allergies to it...so I thought either God sent the cat to comfort me or holly came to tell me in her own way she's ok...sounds crazy I know but that's what I got out of it. That cat appeared out of nowhere, very peculiar. thanks...
