She watches her neighbors move
Maria saw her neighbors move out. So far, nothing abnormal, except that they left behind them Rolo, their cat.
They were the only family Rolo had. So the poor tomcat sat on the doorstep and waited for them, for hours, weeks and months. But his masters never returned.
She tries to adopt him, in vain
Maria tried to get Rolo home many times to shelter him from the cold and the rain, but the tomcat stayed outside the door of his old house.
She started to bring him food regularly, but the poor cat had lost a lot of weight due to the stress. Despite everything, he remained faithful to his old “masters”.
One day when Rolo let himself be approached more than usual, Maria jumped at the chance and hugged him to take him to the vet.
He ends up agreeing to return to his new mistress
Maria asked the vet to examine her, as she was unsure whether her old masters had already done so or not.
Rolo stayed in the clinic for 4 days and then finally returned to Maria’s house. But to him, she was just his babysitter and it was a halfway house before he could get home for good.
Finally, Maria and her boyfriend set up a small room in the house that connects with the garden so that the cat can come and go as it sees fit.
Rolo has everything he could possibly need when he comes to his new home: good food, love for his new owners, toys and soft blankets he loves to curl up in for a nap. !
