A family experienced a great scare when, in the middle of moving, they lost their beautiful pussycat. Unexpectedly, the cat undertook a walk of more than 65 kilometers to return to them.
Halie Kutscher, owner of the cat, shared the surprising story on social networks and here we tell you.
According to Halie, the cat would have escaped days before the move and although they undertook a search, nothing was possible. The most affected was his son Oliver, who ended up clinging to a toy cat and prayed every night for his pet to come back.
I had to be strong for my son’s sake. We prayed together every night that Oliver would somehow come home to us or that he would find another home to be happy in, as long as he was safe, it didn’t matter.
The little boy was so sad that his family had to go back to their old home to look for the cat. In addition, they notified their former neighbors, hoping to have good news.
Two months after the event, an orange cat sat in his garden, patiently waiting to be noticed. Immediately, Nick, Halie’s husband, recognized the pussycat. She called out his name and he emitted his distinctive meow.
It was so distinctive. It was like ‘I’m trying to tell you something, meow’. That’s when I knew, ‘Oh my God, that’s him.’
I picked him up in my arms. As soon as we entered, I knelt down and held him sobbing. He stood there with me as the rest of the family and pets gathered around him. The family dog seemed to recognize him and came over to sniff him. That’s how we knew it was 100 percent him.
Unbelievably, the cat had traveled more than 40 miles to be back with his family. His path was full of dangers, cars, lack of food and changes in weather, but nothing stopped him.
When Oliver realized that his cat had returned, he burst into tears, kept hugging and pampering him. His happiness had returned.
Separately, Halie said the cat was taken to the vet and, thankfully, is in good health. In addition, he was taken to animal aesthetics for a bath and nail clipping. Now everyone is happy.
