Woman finds her missing cat in shelter after four years apart

It’s always very difficult when a pet goes missing, but it’s important not to lose hope. Sometimes pets show up when we least expect them — even months or years after they disappeared.

And this week, one woman reunited with her cat after four years after recognizing his face on an adoption page.

According to the Humane Society of Richland County, a woman named Britni contacted them about a cat they called “Bagel.” She believed Bagel was actually her cat that went missing four years ago.

While the shelter was happy to entertain the idea, they had some doubts.

“When people call us to say that they think that a cat in our care is one that they lost long ago, it’s typically wishful thinking,” the Humane Society wrote in a Facebook post.

However, when Britni sent photos and a description of her cat, they were “absolutely shocked” after seeing the similarities, and realized that their “Bagel” might actually be her long-lost Tike.

After that amazing discovery, Britni arrived at the shelter, and reunited after so many years apart.

“Watching the expression on a person’s face when they are reunited with their long lost pet is an absolutely indescribable feeling,” the Humane Society wrote. “Absolute pure joy.”

Seeing each other for the first time in four years was a joyous and emotional moment for Britni and Tike.

“Happy tears AND happy dance for this long overdue reunion,” they added.

Even after four years apart, she never forgot her beautiful cat’s face — what a miracle they found each other again after so long.
