A truck driver burst into tears when his beloved cat was found after months of searching.
A truck driver named Matthew B. from Texas has an amazing traveling companion named Ashes. The man shares an inseparable bond with his best friend, a three-year-old cat, and spends his days traveling across the country with him.
Unfortunately, a few months ago, on one of these trips, Ashes accidentally escaped from Matthew’s truck while passing through Springfield, Ohio.
The cat was afraid of being in an unknown environment and ran towards the bushes. The devastated owner frantically searched for his friend, but eventually gave up and went back on the road.
Over the course of two months, the driver reorganized his routes so that he could return to the same place in Ohio where Ashes was last seen. However, the cat was nowhere.
When Matthew probably thought he would never see Ashes again, a nice passer-by saw him. The woman named Kimberly saw Ashes suffering from the cold on the street.
“I was trying not to set foot on the ground, it was very cold,” she said. The woman took Ashes and took him to the animal rescue organization called Lollypop Farm.
Fortunately, Ashes had a microchip that helped locate Mathew. The employees were stunned when they discovered that Ashes was 2,357 kilometers from their home.
“Our admissions team immediately scanned the microchip, as we do with all incoming pets. Not only did they have one, but they had an owner who registered it with a Texas address that was more than 2357 km! It was a very kind and affectionate kitty, “the organization said.
Matthew was relieved to find that his beloved feline was safe.
A week and a half after Ashes’ arrival, Matthew’s truck stopped in front of the shelter.
The gray cat immediately recognized and approached his human father. “Ashes recognized Matthew and immediately became affectionate,” said the shelter.
Matthew burst into tears as he gently rubbed his head against Ashes’ and hugged him tightly in a warm embrace.
During the meeting, he burst into tears as he hugged Ashes and called it his “Christmas miracle”.
