This woman never thought that her love for felines would lead her on a crazy adventure. Since the woman has lived in Seoul, South Korea her whole life, she had been around cats since she was a very small child. The woman had moved into a neighborhood five years ago that had apartment buildings that were extremely close to each other. Thanks to the back alleys and terraces, the neighborhood was perfect for stray cats. The woman became attached to them almost immediately.

As soon as she moved in, the old woman began feeding the cats. Her neighbors didn't mind because it meant that the cats would stay away from their windows and would leave their trash alone. It wasn't long before the old woman knew all of the cats, and they knew her, as well. But cats can be sneaky and she didn't know all of their secrets. Their was one cat in particular that caught the woman's attention with its intriguing personality.

The old woman began to notice one cat in particular — a female tabby. This cat acted differently than all of the other cats. As the old lady would approach her with the food, the cat would sniff, but she would never eat anything. The woman figured she had already eaten, but then the cat did the same thing the following day. The woman realized that she had seen the cat before. It wasn't uncommon for stray cats to disappear for awhile and come back later. It was the cat's behavior that was strange.

The old lady remembered that the cat, who the woman named Dong-Sook, had recently given birth in one the basements. A neighbor told the old woman that the tabby had five kittens, but none of them had survived. She began to feel sad for the cat, and figured that she was still mourning the loss of her kittens. Was Dong-Sook so sad about losing her kittens that she completely stopped eating?

The woman knew that she needed to try to cheer up the cat. She decided to buy some wet cat food, which was only for special occasions. Dong-Sook wouldn't be able to resist such a yummy snack. As she opened the can, the woman placed the food in front of her. The tabby looked at the food, then at the woman, and she meowed. But she wouldn't touch the food. That was when something unexpected happened.

As the woman watched Dong-Sook, the old lady had a bag of dry cat food in her hand that was meant for the other cats. The woman couldn't believe she still wouldn't eat, so she reached down to pet the cat. The cat reached out with her paw and tried to knock the food out of the woman's hand. The old lady let the food fall to the ground. Dong-Sook grabbed the food with her teeth and ran away. The old woman was left feeling extremely confused.

The old woman still couldn't believe how Dong-Sook was behaving. The woman had been feeding strays for five years and she had never experienced anything like it. To see if Dong-Sook would do it again, the woman came out with another bag of food. Once again, the cat grabbed the bag and ran with it. The woman didn't know why, but she was determined to find out.

The woman realized that she needed to follow Dong-Sook to find out where she was taking the food. As usual, the woman came out with a bag of cat food. She waited for Dong-Sook to show up, and she put the bag down. As soon as the tabby grabbed the food, the woman followed the cat with her camera. Dong-Sook led her through narrow alleyways, and the woman soon realized it wouldn't be an easy journey.

The cat jumped up onto a terrace ledge and the woman thought she had lost her. But she climbed the stairs and discovered Dong-Sook, who had stopped climbing and was pacing around the terrace with the bag of food in her mouth. She appeared to be waiting for something. Then the woman noticed it: a tiny kitten.

A small tabby kitten was climbing the ledge. The kitten walked up to Dong-Sook, who dropped the bag of food on the ground. With no problem at all, the kitten ripped the bag open with its teeth. The woman realized it had done it before. As Dong-Sook watched closely, the kitten ate the food. The woman finally realized what was going on.

It was obvious that not all of Dong-Sook's litter had died. This one kitten had lived, and Dong-Sook was doing everything she could to take care of it. The woman began to cry, and knew that she needed to do something to help the pair of cats. Dong-Sook was extremely clever and resourceful, but the old woman wanted to make sure that her efforts weren't in vain, so she called a local animal rescue organization. She wanted the cats to have a better chance at life.

The animal group watched the video the woman took and couldn't believe what Dong-Sook had done. One of them said, "After suffering, she was attached to the kitten." The rescue sent their staff to the woman's neighborhood to try to find and capture the cats. Since Dong-Sook didn't know them, it wasn't going to be easy. Dong-Sook was a lifelong stray, so she was definitely going to put up a fight.

Since the kitten was smaller and more docile, the volunteers captured it first. In order to show Dong-Sook that they didn't mean any harm, they picked up the kitten with extreme care. Dong-Sook was still wary, but she allowed the rescuers to take her, as well. She must have known it was the only way to stay with her kitten. The woman was sad to see them leave, but she was happy for their future.

The group was able to find a new home for Dong-Sook and her kitten. They even bought them a brand new house to sleep in. The kitten was extremely excited about all of the new blankets, and it jumped playfully on its mother. Dong-Sook wasn't as emotional, but when it came time to eat, she finally accepted the food. It seemed as if she knew that she didn't need to worry about finding food for her kitten anymore!
