In my first post I did about Willow the article stated she had not been reunited with her family. That's why I was THRILLED to read that she had, at last, been reunited with her family!! I love Lolo's sweet. She welcomed Willow with no questions asked. This is why babies/toddlers and kittens/puppes/cats/dogs are so SPECIAL; The ONLY THING they know how to do is to LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY...

I say Willow has "lady luck" on her side.. She got lost, someone took care of her for the next five years, animal control finds her on the street - Bingo, and she's home again. It's like that for some animals, as it can be for people. Just everything falls right into place. That makes me really happy.

How wonderful, it must be awful to not know what happened to your baby and, finally, to have the fears laid to rest, must be a great relief. Welcome home Willow.

I am glad Willow is back home in Colorado , However I have to wonder about the person or persons that took her from her home state to NY , Most veterinarians and all shelters equipped w/ scanners will for no charge scan a found animal , I feel the findee"s of Willow were remiss in there duty to truly help her.
However in this case karma prevailed !
Good for her , And thank you Barbcat for posting.

Thanks for this uplifting story... it's nice to see such a happy ending.

Interesting though, at how often this same basic scenario is played out. In one such in the UK the cat had been missing for six years. One never knows, eh?
