When winter came, the cat disappeared. Karl was heartbroken. After searching high and low, he eventually found the cat on a farm in the valley.
Time spent with a cat is never wasted. This is a story of two men developing an unlikely friendship because of one unassuming feline adventurer who freely traverses across the Alps. It is said that cats choose us, we don't own them. Karl Schneider (94) from Linthal, Switzerland would certainly agree. One day several years ago, a black and white house cat showed up unannounced on Karl's doorstep and made itself at home. He had no clue where it came from or to whom it belonged to. Along the way, Karl and farmer Fridli have grown close, despite their 40-year age difference. When the cat leaves, Karl's emotional state suffers. But as soon as the weather improves, so does Karl's mood.
