Cat Reunited with Owner a Year Later at Local Shelter

Petting cats at a local shelter turned out to be a reunion between this girl and her missing cat. It was a heart warming moment when the two met.

“My friend just went to pet cats at our local animal shelter, and found her cat that had been missing for over a year. She called her name (princess) and she came running,” said sweeetniblets via reddit.

    That is so wonderful! I am so happy for you and your sweet little Princess. Absolutely delighted. You must’ve cried buckets of tears of joy when you first saw her there. The universe conspired to bring her back to you – I am so happy for you both, that now I’m weeping for joy, too.

    WOW! What a story! So happy for Princess and her owner. A year is quite awhile so it really is miracle that they found each other. :)

    This brings tears to my eyes. So wonderful for you espcially for Princess. I know she was missing you.

  8. Rezgirl says:

    One more thing I to add: Please get Princess microchiped, it does not cost much and it’s worth it.

  9. Gretchen says:

    That’s wonderful.

    What a great outcome! I would be a total basket case if any of my 3 kitties went missing….I agree with comments above me. Get you baby girl microchipped. Also keep her indoors. Domestic cats do NOT need to be outside. They aren’t equipped mentally for it. My 3 are indoor only and they are the happiest goofy, playfull cats you’d ever meet

  45. victoria risko says:

    what a great story! made my day

  46. Fern Porras says:

    This proves that if your pet becomes lost, keep checking at your local animal shelter. Quite a few animals that are adopted end up back in the shelter after a period of time. I’m glad this had such a happy ending.

  47. Franklin says:

    Aww! I’m so happy for the two of you!!!!! I’m so glad that you found each other and are back together :-)
