On a frigid first day in Switzerland, this cat helped a disoriented man descend a mountain.

When a guy was walking through the mountains and got lost, a cat walked up to him and pointed him on the proper path. I’ll be honest and say that I got lost in the nearby mountains.

The automatic lifts weren’t operational, and a few lines had recently been shut down when I visited because it was the end of the ski season, the man explained. Before moving on to the automatic lifts, he made a detour up the mountain.

When he got to the top, he took a railroad track into a “completely empty town,” where he pretended to be by himself. The major route down was down a trail that was closed, so I was really looking at my book to figure out how I might get back to the valley.

Additionally, it’s how I got to know this amazing cat. When he paused to eat and relax, the cat became aware of him. He said, “When I stood up, she began leading me down a trail.”

“I think she lives in the town I was in,” you said. She continued to stare at me as she walked, pointing out the trail that would take me back to the valley.
