Man finds beloved lost cat while looking for new pet

A reunion between pet and owner could paw-ssibly warm your heart and bring hope.

A man in Bangor, Maine, went to an animal shelter in mid-August to find a new pet. The man was looking for a cat to help heal his heart after his kitty, Cutie Pie, disappeared a week before.

As the man walked through the kennels, he lingered at one in particular. When the cat turned toward the man, he “erupted with joy,” according to a Facebook post from Bangor Humane.

It was Cutie Pie. The man’s phone was filled with pictures of Cutie Pie, “leaving no question that this reunion was the real deal,” according to the Facebook post.

Shelter employees say they have never seen a cat so eager to get into a cat carrier as Cutie Pie headed back home.

“This is good stuff,” Bangor Humane wrote.
