A Cat Assisting A Deaf And Dumb Woman
The chill wind was moaning, the rain falling drearily, and day darkening
rapidly, when a lady might have been seen walking along quickly through
Eccles Street. She was thinking of home, with its bright warm fire, and
how soon she could get in out of the cold and wet.
Suddenly she stopped, as a feeble cry arrested her footsteps, and
looking round, she perceived a cat crouched against some steps. The
storm was beating on the poor harmless creature, and night coming on.
The lady did not turn away and hurry on, as some selfish people would
have done, but pitied and called the poor cat. It looked so forlorn, and
gave a frightened glance in her face. Gaining courage from what it saw
there, it trusted her, and jumped up, curled its tail over its back, and
trotted contentedly after her. The lady went on. When she looked back
now and then, there was pussy trotting steadily behind.
Presently the lady knocked at a hall door, and when it was opened they
passed into a bright room, and pussy sat down to dry before a warm fire,
where two other cats, sleek and well fed, kept her company. Well, our
puss, whose name was "Gipsy," very soon was lapping a saucer of warm
milk. After that she looked at the fire, and winked her eyes until she
Sarah Darby, who is deaf and dumb, was at that time living in this
house. Pussy became very fond of Sarah, and liked to sit in her lap
because she was kind to it. Now Sarah did not think a cat could help
her, but she knew that God commands us to be kind to helpless creatures,
and He always rewards us when we obey Him.
You will wonder how a cat could help anyone, so I will tell you.
Sometimes Sarah was alone in the house, and when a knock came to the
hall door there was no one to tell her but puss, and puss did so. How?
She jumped down off Sarah's lap, and looked up in her face every time a
knock came, and after the door had been opened got on her lap again, and
waited for the next one. So this is how the cat helped the deaf and dumb
