Teen Volunteers At Animal Shelter And Finds Her Long Lost Cat

Reunited and it feline good! 

Talk about meant to be! In Roseburg, Oregon, lived a teen who lost her childhood cat three years ago. 

The Roseburg teen decided to volunteer at a local animal shelter, three years later, only to find herself face to face with a familiar face.

At the Saving Grace Pet Adoption center, 15-year-old Hannah Rountree recognized Spunky, her long lost cat. At first, Hannah wasn't 100% sure it was Spunky, only that the resemblance was uncanny, "I was like, is that my cat? It literally looks so much like Spunky."

"He was my first cat and the first thing I bonded with as a child, so it was really hard; I cried a lot," Hannah told KMTR.

Hannah and her family spent months looking for Spunky when he disappeared three years ago. Hannah made the realization that Spunky might be forever lost to her, "that's when I was kind of like, I think he passed away, or someone took him far away."

"That's how I got him; it was just fate, I feel like."

But there's still a mystery as to where Spunky had been these past years. You see, Saving Grace director Wendy Kang, Spunky was only brought into the shelter just a few months ago. "He was brought in as a stray who had been found off the side of the highway in Winchester," Kang said. 

Spunky went up for adoption and was actually adopted by a couple who brought him back because Spunky wasn't very fond of chasing mice. 

So there he was, the stars aligned, and Hannah and Spunky were able to reunite at long last.

Persistent Cat Wouldn't Give Up On Joining One Family

This cat knows what he wants and he knows just WHO he wants! That 'who' he wanted was Erin Breean

Erin Breean was walking her dog, Murphy, with her boyfriend, when she noticed a furry stranger. She didn't realize at the time that this lil stranger would soon stalk her entire family for the next several days! 

Thankfully, this furry stranger we're talking about is a cat. Otherwise, this story would just be really creepy.

Woman Quits Job And Searches 57 Days To Find Her Lost Dog

And she did! The love we have for our pets can sometimes astound us! 

Meet Carole King of Deer Park, Washington, who lost her beloved 7-year-old border collie named Katie. 

It happened on July 20th, when Carole, her husband, and Katie, traveled to Flathead County for a four-day getaway. The couple had gone out to dinner and left Katie in their hotel room, and when they returned Katie was nowhere to be found. 

King told the Daily Inter Lake that she was devastated and sick to her stomach. She frantically searched her room for her Katie, looking for any signs of her beloved canine before rushing to the front desk in hopes Katie was still somewhere in the building.  

King said, "I said to the clerk, 'please tell me you have my dog.' The clerk says 'no, she left about 4, 4 1/2 hours ago,' " 

Unfortunately, the moment those automatic doors opened, Katie ran out without a trace. 

The devastated couple spent days that soon turned into weeks looking for Katie.

Carole King worked as a postal worker but quit in order to continue her search and dedicate all her time to it. 

The news about Katie was beginning to spread online and in doing so, multiple Facebook pages popped up, filled with users who were offering words of encouragement and sharing and information about recent sightings that could help bring Katie home. 

King hung up 500 flyers around the county, searching into the night and gone as far as setting up a few game cameras in spots where Katie had been spotted.

"I never gave up. I never lost hope," said King.

On September 15th, 57 days later, King got a call in the early morning from a man in the Country Estates neighborhood. He told her there was a dog in his backyard that matched the description of Katie. It just so happened that the day before the call, King and a friend were in that very neighborhood posting flyers around. 

King called up that same friend for help as they rushed out to find Katie but by the time they arrived, the dog was already gone. 

The pair decided to search the neighborhood again with no luck in sight. As they decide to return back home, a woman called out to King, "As the lady was walking back, she points over to the tree where it's real dark and says, 'Is that your dog?'" King said. "And I turn and it's Katie."

Heart skipping a beat and beyond excited, King called out to her beloved dog, "Katie. Katie girl!"

Katie came running over.

"I just bear-hugged her; I wasn't going to let her go," King recalled. "Tears were flying, we were screaming, everybody is high-fiving, hugging each other. People are stopping in their vehicles, getting out and hugging us. I think the whole neighborhood knew that we found her."

Immediately from there, King took Katie to a local emergency vet clinic where King learned that she had lost 12 pounds, was severely dehydrated and in starvation mode.

Even though Katie was skin and bones, she is in good spirits and expected to make a full recovery. 

Congratulations to the King's who never gave up hope! Katie is lucky to have you!
