She screamed, "Bandit!" But right when she opened the door, the cat raced outside into the darkness. She rushed after him hearing his persistent cries that became fainter. Then she saw it. She was panic-stricken but managed to dial 911, hoping it wasn't too late.
Fran Swayze lives in the Buena Vista Seniors Community in Cleburne, Texas, with her cat, Bandit. But Fran didn't always have her beloved kitty by her side. But on this fateful night, she was glad she did. You see, Bandit is an extremely perceptive cat, and Fran was about to discover this wonderful quality.
The One For Her
The tabby tomcat lived his first year at a no-kill shelter after being picked up as a stray. When Fran first saw Bandit, she instantly knew he was the one for her. She needed a companion, so she completed all the necessary adoption paperwork and took him home the same day. She had no idea that Bandit would repay her in the most shocking way.
Fran soon found that keeping Bandit inside her small home would not be easy. He was full of energy and wanted to roam free just like most cats do. His natural instincts called him nightly and he had to discover the sights, smells, and other cats of the neighborhood. Fran was well aware of the dangers that face cats outside, so the pair had to compromise.
Fran would accompany Bandit every evening on a walk around the neighborhood to satisfy his curiosity. When they were done walking, Bandit would be confined to the house. The chaperoned walks seemed to suit the cat just fine. After each evening walk, Bandit would curl up on the bed. But one evening everything changed.
