A pet that has touched your life is a pet that is a part of the family. For Iris Samaniego and her family, an elderly cat named Diego is an animal who almost has their blood when it comes to being part of the family. In June 2015, they thought Diego was eaten by coyotes outside their home. They tried looking for him everywhere.
On December 2016, Iris just thought she would head to the shelter. According to Iris it was just a gut feeling of hers — a woman’s intuition of sorts — and saw that Diego was alive and was all along in the shelter. Their meeting is what you’d expect — the need for plenty of Kleenex.
