There were three cats living in the forest near our house in very bad conditions. They were thin and wild, but little by little I won their trust. Now they live in my garden, they give me their love and keep me a company. They are beautiful, healthy and little bit fat now. I thank the Virgin for helping me to win them over, because I love these cats very much and they love me.
