Having a pet in your life is like having another family member. When they run away or go missing, it’s one of the hardest things to overcome.
But, sometimes, life works in magical ways. One Twitter user shared the incredible story of how her very first pet ran away five years ago–and finally came home.
The Twitter user shared that she was in shock after her first pet ever, Panther, came home finally after he had gone missing for 5 years. He immediately ran up to her father and ran to his favorite spot in their house.
The story of how they figured out that Panther was actually their cat is unbelievable and proves that sometimes in life–miracles do happen. After her cat had gone missing, he had turned up at a shelter 15 miles away from their town. Apparently, a kind woman had adopted Panther. She eventually couldn’t take care of Panther anymore and gave the cat to her parents–who happened to be this woman’s next door neighbors.
Apparently, the parents had a husky they could no longer take care of and after losing Panther, asked this woman if she wanted to adopt their dog.
So, she adopted the huskey–Trotsky–all while never realizing they had her cat, Panther.
When Panther returned to his original home, Trotsky didn’t bark or freak out–because the two had been life-long friends while living next door. As it turns out, it was Panther the entire time and everyone was mindblown. I mean, I am too.
Instead of asking for her cat back, this woman was kind enough to continue to allow her neighbors to house Panther–and, they even let her come visit whenever she wants.
This is one amazing ending to a truly sad story. Losing a pet is something unimaginable for many people–let alone for 5 years. Many people would give up looking and forget about their pets, but, it shows how important our pets are in all of our lives–they’re family.
