Richland County, Ohio – A cat who disappeared from home four very long years ago was back in his owner’s arms this week after his photo was spotted on the website of an animal shelter in Richland County, Ohio.
The Humane Society of Richland County shared the amazing story via social media on Wednesday, writing:
Britni called us today after seeing a post about our big boy Bagel, who looks just like her cat who had been missing for 4 years. We asked her to send us photos and a description, and we were absolutely SHOCKED to realize that Bagel is indeed her boy Tike.
Tike and his mom are going to be reunited later today.
The shelter posted photos of the miraculous reunion, writing of the joy everyone was feeling when Britni and Tike were back together again:
Watching the expression on a person’s face when they are reunited with their long-lost pet is an absolutely indescribable feeling. Absolute pure joy.
Britni and Bagel (Tike) were reunited today.
According to the shelter, Tike was surrendered by another family who was moving and could not take him with them. Apparently, they found the big cat and decided to keep him at some point after he vanished from his true home.
Welcome home Tike!
