Post-traumatic stress disorder is, unfortunately, a common condition for many combat soldiers. This wound cannot be seen, but it continues to cause incredible suffering even after everything is over.
Today’s story is about a man named Josh who suffered greatly after returning from the fighting. It seemed to him that there was no end to these torments and the only way out that he saw was suicide …
He wrote his farewell note and decided to go out onto the porch of his house to smoke his last cigarette… And then something incredible happened…
A barely audible “meow” came from the bushes, and a second later a small kitten was rubbing against his leg.
“He just came up to me, rubbed himself against my leg and let me pet him. I cried…
This meeting changed everything!
Josh started feeding the kitten every day. As soon as he went out onto the porch and called his savior, he immediately resorted to his voice.
But, a few days later, returning from work, Josh could not find the small kitten … The man was depressed.
The kitten changed Josh’s life, and the man started dating a girl. A month later, they decided to get a cat in memory of the kitten who saved him.
The couple went to the shelter to choose a pet. Passing by the enclosures, a black and white paw grabbed Josh by the shoulder … He could not believe his eyes – in front of him was exactly that black and white kitten that had already managed to grow up.
Josh named him Scout, and now they are inseparable.
The cat has become an integral part of Josh’s life. Scout helped Josh recover and start a new life.
