Cat Jumps Straight Into His Owner’s Arms After Being Lost For 536 Days

We adore cats not only because they are adorable, awesome, and perfect, but also because they are independent little explorers who enjoy going on their own adventures.However, it can cause issues for their owners who are worried sick at home and don’t know when their furry friend will return.

This is why animal activists have long advocated for people to microchip their pets: there is a much better chance of reuniting with your beloved friend if it goes missing, writes boredpanda.

A story about a cute orange boy named Cat recently went viral, because the adorable feline went missing and didn’t return home for 536 days.Mindy and Luke Criner, his owners, were beginning to lose hope when Cat reappeared in their lives, purring and meowing for their attention.

Cat, a cat, had been missing for 536 days.The cat was adopted from the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter in Virginia and was initially very shy.He wasn’t interested in playing with other kittens, so his prospective owners decided he needed a loving home to boost his confidence.In June of 2015, we adopted a cat named Cat, who is now about 6 years old.He was the most timid kitten in the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter’s kennel.

They were going to put him in their “barn cat” program because he was so timid, but he had that look in his eyes like the kitty from Shrek while watching the other kittens play longingly, and I knew he was meant for our family at that moment.

The Criners immediately posted about their missing pet on the Lost & Found Pets – Hampton Roads, VA Facebook page.They also left Cat’s litter box and food outside in the hopes that the smell would draw him in, but it didn’t work.The Criners’ friends checking the posters and little housing stations all over the neighborhood didn’t help either.
The family was beginning to lose faith.”I sent a post with all of the cats’ information to Gina (an absolute gem who runs the Lost and Found Pets of Hampton Roads FB page solely out of the goodness of her heart), who immediately shared it and got people looking.”
