A week after one of Scott Ewels’ pet cats, Bear, suddenly passed away, his other cat, Teddy, came home with a heartfelt note attached to his collar.

Bear and his brother, Teddy, were like two peas in a pod. When Bear suddenly passed away last month, his owner, Scott Ewels, was heartbroken. Little did he know Bear had touched someone else’s life as well.

One day, Teddy came home bearing a handwritten note attached to his collar.

“Dear Owner, I’m your neighbor, living in 4. I’m also your cats’ close friend, 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 such a lovely cat and always touched my heart. Wish he is fine,” the heartfelt note read.

Ewels wrote back to let the neighbor know about Bear’s sudden death.

“We posted a letter back into number 4, saying that our other cat had passed away. We also included our email address,” the cats’ owner, Scott Ewels said.

The neighbor turned out to be an exchange student from Taiwan who was studying at a nearby university. Ewels’ two cats used to drop by her place every day. They had kept her company when she felt homesick and lonely. Bear and Teddy even helped her study. They used to sit on her bed and listen to her while she was practicing her English.

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


The exchange student visited Bear’s grave in Ewels’ back yard, and the two have kept in touch ever since.

“Makes you proud that he could brighten up more than just my household’s lives,” Bear’s owner said.
