Josh Marino, a U.S Army veteran was in a battlefield in Iraq when he sustained traumatic injuries after an explosion. Josh returned home for treatment, and while recovering, he began to develop post traumatic stress disorder.
One day, he’d had enough and decided to end his life. Josh wrote a letter and prepared his knife and stepped outside for one last cigarette. There, in a thunderstorm, He heard a tiny kitten mewing for help. He walked over and petted and comforted the poor kitty. Then, every day, Josh would walk out and feed the kitten, establishing a friendship that saved his life.
Then, one day, his little fur-buddy disappeared, only to reappear at another pivotal moment in both their lives. Even before he was my cat, before he even knew me that well, “Scout saved my life. He put me on a different path,” Josh added. “He gave me the confidence to try to come back from all the adversity that I was feeling.”
