According the the story in The Mirror, the note read: “Dear Owner; I’m your neighbor, living in 4. I’m also your cats’ close friends as they (2 cats) are used to coming to my room everyday. But one of them, a bigger one has disappeared for two weeks.

“Is he ok? I’m so worried about him. He is so lovely cat and always touched my heart. Wish he is fine. – Y.T. 2/March/2017.”

Bear’s owner Scott Ewels had some sad news for the young woman who wrote the note. Bear had died suddenly a month ago. The Ewels were heartbroken, he told The Mirror. “We posted a letter back into number 4, saying that our other cat had passed away. We also included our email address.”

It wasn’t long before Scott and his wife received a long email from the neighbor, an exchange student from Taiwan studying at a nearby university.

Bear used to visit and sit with her, which helped with her lessons.”He would sit on her bed and listen… she didn’t have anyone else to practice with. Very touching… She even attached some pictures they had taken of my boys which warmed my heart.”
