One summer day, my little Juli and I were sad to find a dragonfly whose wing was damaged because our cat Kibe caught it. We took care of it, trying to help the dragonfly fly but it struggled flying with only one wing. Kibe watched at the side. We brought it inside in a plastic box, giving it a few drops of water. Next morning, Juli took an ant and brought it to the dragonfly who ate some of it. Eventually, we brought it outside in a protective shelter where it later naturally died. Next day, Juli stood in front of the gate and saw a dragonfly which flew to her chest near or around her heart and stayed there for minutes until I took a photo of it.
