When we bring a pet into the home, we are doing more than adding an animal to the household. We are adding another member of the family and, in many cases, we get as close or closer to them than we could ever imagine. They are there for us when we are having good times and bad times, and they give us love on an unconditional basis. That is why it is so difficult when we lose them.
Sometimes, our pets pass away but, at times, they may run away as well. When they run away, we may look for them for quite some time but eventually, we may just give up hope on ever finding them again. It’s difficult but we need to grieve and move on with life.
Then there are times when we have the most shocking thing happen, and that is what happened to this family. Their cat got out and was missing for 3 years. When they visited the local shelter, the little girl got the surprise of her life. It was her cat, and she couldn’t be happier.
