Rex, a cat owned by Emily Crane, had a habit of disappearing every day.

Then he returned home with an adorable note from his neighbors which shed light on the cat's whereabouts.


Crane has had Rex for eight years. Not long after rescuing him as a kitten, she discovered that he liked to go outside.

"He loves attention, especially when it comes with nice, behind the ear scratches," Crane told The Dodo.

"At a rather young age, he starting begging to go outside. I would let him out the back door and watch from my upstairs kitchen window."

He's adorable, isn't he?

Rex had free rein of the neighborhood from a young age and Crane believes seeing a "friendly kitty" likely delighted her neighbors. Then one day he returned home with a note attached to his collar.

"He pranced inside with it, like he knew that he had a delivery to make," Crane said.

The note reads:

"Hello! This is your neighbor in the red house! We just wanted to let you know that Rex has developed a weird love for our bathtub + will sneak into our home to sit in it! All of us in the house are 100% okay with this because we all love Rex very much. We just want to let you know in case you were wondering where he was one of these days … he's probably in our bathtub. <3 The Red House."

Crane says she thought the letter was hilarious.

"I seriously could not stop laughing when I found the note," she said. "It was adorable!"

Others concurred––and shared stories of their own.

"I love how friendly Rex is with people," Crane said. "If they are interested, I can tell it makes their day to give a pet to a handsome, social kitty cat."

Rex has made our day as well––and we're eagerly awaiting that children's book.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
