Cat was adopted by Mindy and Luke Criner from the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter in Virginia and brought home with his timidity.
He has a default of not being an ignorance but rather sitting off to the side, watching others of his siblings played. But Criner knew that didn’t mean Cat doesn’t need attention.
Cat soon learned that he never had to hide his love anymore. When his mom delivered a new baby home, Cat turned into a sweet yet protective brother.
But that day was not like any day, Cat didn’t return from his exploration around the backyard. Despite Criner’s effort to call, there was no sign of Cat responding.
Criner frenetically reached help at the Lost & Found Pets – Hampton Roads. The organization got her appeal spread all over social media and everything they could do with the couple to find Cat. The Criners started their quest going all lengths, leaving no stone unturned. They put up posters, leaking Cat’s scent in the litter box, and searching for him every single night around the neighborhood.
When days turned to a year, the couple went out of their hope but not the pain of losing Cat. The couple kept counting the day Cat was missing. On the 536th day, Criner received a call saying someone found Cat.
The man keeping Cat reported that he had been feeding him for a year. But then a car accident happened to Cat, putting him into a clinic where he was scanned for a microchip and discovered to be missing Cat.
When Criner came to the man’s house, Cat was on the porch. The moment Cat saw Criner, he didn’t hesitate to get on her body and purred. Cat then gave Criner the biggest head-rub he could do to “reclaim” his true owner.
Now Cat is back in his loving home, gaining even more affection and cuddling from his parents and siblings.
