A loyal cat has been bringing his owner small gifts everyday in a show of affection. The catch? The cat's owner has been dead for over a year. Meet Toldo -- a cute, 3-year-old black and white cat living in Montagnana, northern Italy. According to the Corriere Fiorentino, Toldo has been visiting his owner -- Iozzelli Renzo, who died on September 22, 2011, aged 71 -- everyday for the past year and leaving small presents at the grave. The gifts usually consist of leaves, sticks, twigs, plastic cups or paper towels. Story continues after photo: "Even today I went to the cemetery with Toldo. On the way back, someone I know told me the cat has already been there early this morning," Renzo's widow, Ada, told the Corriere Fiorentino. Neighbors have also seen Toldo wandering around the cemetery through the day.

Rhonda , your pics are so cute, I LOVE the one of your German Shepard licking the kitten! I think his tongue is bigger that the kitten :) @ Patty...this touched me too! We actually have a cat in the neighborhood, "Jet", who does the same thing, although we are quite alive! I kept finding bits of trash, plastic bags mostly, on our back patio. I finally saw Jet one day dragging a large plastic baggie through our back yard, and sure enough it was deposited on the patio by the door! Funny.

For sure, Linda. My two males, Beso & Baci, kept me up half the night last night...snoring! For the love of animals!

Sounds like Renzo's widow, Ada, threw her husband’s loyal cat out of the house after her husband’s death. Maybe Toldo is also delivering a message to Ada or to those in the community. Cute story but makes one wonder why this lovable cat is wandering around the hood during the day :)

Isn't that a sweet story. Funny your cats snore. I don't think I've ever heard mine snore, but our dog did.

Conky, I think Toldo is enjoying his celebrity! @ Sherri, they gurgle and burp and purr like motor engines running!
