Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Other than the fact that Holly had lost some weight (seven pounds or so) and had bleeding paws, owners Jacob and Bonnie Richter of West Palm Beach were absolutely delighted to have their little pal back.
No one – including scientists — could explain why or how this happened.
But I’m not surprised. The same thing happened to me about forty years ago when my wife and I moved here from northern NY State – 250 miles away.
When I was a kid growing up in Ogdensburg, we had a family dog named Sandy. And many years later, after we settled in WNY, I heard a dog barking outside our family home in Medina. I looked out the window and couldn’t believe my eyes. It was Sandy.
But unlike Holly, the cat, Sandy had gained weight — about 75 pounds. And … she was no longer the same breed of dog.
But what was even more weird ... I thought, for sure, that when that train ran over her in ‘59, she had died.
I doubt if scientists could explain that one, either.
