Loyal kitty loves his human so much that he brings him gifts... to his grave
This sweet tabby cat continued to visit his human and bring him gifts every day since he passed. This is love.
Iozelli Renzo, an elderly man who loved animals, adopted Toldo when he was 3 months old, and the two shared an incredible bond from the start. Renzo and his family lived in Montagnana, northern Italy.
According to the Corriere Fiorentino, Toldo loved his human so much that he had been visiting Renzo, who died in September 2011 at the age of 71, every day for the past year and leaving small presents at the grave.
"He brings little twigs, leaves, toothpicks, plastic cups. A bit of everything really," said Reno's widow Ada.
No one noticed the cat's behavior when he followed Iozzelli's funeral procession until later when he began to make his regular trips to the cemetery, bringing little sprigs and gifts to the gravestone.
"Sometimes he comes with me and sometimes he goes on his own," Ada added.
The day after the funeral, they found a sprig of acacia on the grave, then later that evening, they saw Toldo standing guard at the grave. The story quickly spread out in the village. Many people also witnessed it.
"The whole town knows about him now," Ada said. "He loved my husband. It was something else! Now it's just me, my daughter and my son-in-law and he's very affectionate with us too."
Some people don't understand the bonds cats can share with us.
