Just when you think you have heard it all, an exciting story suddenly appears and takes over our lives for a short time. A little kitten was reunited with his loving owner Matthew B. after a 1,500 km journey. The owner was happy and relieved and couldn’t hide his emotions. After all, the truck driver was looking for his feline friend for some time and had given up hope of ever seeing him again.
The anxious owner and his shaggy cat Ashes were inseparable. Since Matthew is a truck driver, he always took Ashes on trips and they discovered wonderful places together every day. Matthew took good care of Ashes and developed a strong bond with the three-year-old cat. While traveling alone can be quite lonely, with a four-legged friend it is sure to be an amazing adventure.
Last July, the two business partners traveled to Springfield, Ohio. They had just finished their workday and were looking forward to some downtime with a stop at Lov’s. They had the time of their lives. They were enjoying themselves as usual when Ashes was suddenly awakened by a strange noise. The furry animal was so desperate that it ran into the bushes and disappeared completely. Ashe’s father couldn’t believe it and felt completely lost. He was stunned and didn’t know what to do.
He looked around for his beloved cat, but he couldn’t find it anywhere. The worst thing for Matthew was that he couldn’t search for his feline friend forever. After a few hours he had to leave again. His heart was deeply broken. Even if he had to return to his normal life, Matthew had not yet given up on the sweet ash. Each time he came to the Springfield area, he tried to change his travel plans to find his favorite little cat.
Matthew returned several times but was never found. He always came home alone. He was beginning to feel unhappy. After all, it’s hard to travel many miles without a companion, especially when you have your best friend with you on every journey.
At this point, the story gets even better!
In early March, two women decided to go on vacation to New York. They stopped at Love’s stop to rest. This was also the Love’s stop where Ashes disappeared a long time ago.
The sweet friends were looking forward to their vacation and stopped only briefly. They were about to return to their car when a friendly cat came out of the woods asking for help. Matthew’s beloved Ash had finally found his way back to Love’s Stop. The two ladies took the cute cat back to their car and helped him warm up. They knew they had to help this lovely cat, so they decided to take him back to New York with them.
The two rescuers were delighted that Ashes decided to join them on their journey. They had a great time together thanks to Ashe’s strong street charm. When they arrived in New York, the women contacted Lollypop Farm, a non-profit organization working for animal welfare. They went to the animal shelter in the hope of finding the kitten’s owner.
Thanks to his microchip, the shelter was able to learn a lot about Ashes. The shelter and the women were surprised to learn that Ashes was not just any cat, but a stray cat who had traveled 1,465 miles from home!
By reading his microchip, the shelter was able to quickly locate his frightened owner.
Matthew couldn’t believe his ears when the phone rang. The women were hoping he would answer and knew that if he did, he would have to make peace with his long-lost friend.
Matthew, who lives in Texas, had to rearrange his schedule to travel to New York to pick up his best friend. A week and a half later, Matthew traveled to New York in search of his dear friend.
Ashes recognized Matthew immediately and was very happy to see him. When Ashes approached the human father and asked for some attention, Matthew burst into tears. He was happy to see his long-lost friend again. He hugged Ashes for a long time and promised to never leave him.
This was truly a Christmas miracle for Matthew. Matthew thanked the shelter and emphasized the importance of microchipping his beloved pet. It is the only way to ensure that a lost or stolen pet is found and returned to its new family.
Ashes was happy to be reunited with his human friend. Fortunately, their bond was stronger than ever. They were looking forward to returning to their normal lives and spending the rest of their lives in each other’s company.
