STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. At age 4, Emily Bauer had a favorite stuffed animal, a black cat named Plurna. She shed tears when it was lost on the family farm. Fourteen years later, a worker was putting up a fence and spotted something. The black cat was covered in dirt and vines - more of a gray cat now but otherwise intact. The Washington Post reports Emily was unable to speak. Her mom wrote - universe, thanks for the lift.
