Brokenhearted Man Goes To Shelter To Heal His Heart—Gets Best Surprise Ever!

When you lose a cat, a piece of your heart goes with them. Cats are family for many reasons, and when one goes missing it’s utterly devastating. For Theron, his cat Cutie Pie went missing and he searched for him only to find nothing. Cutie Pie was very loved and cared for by his cat dad, and Theron felt the only way to try and mend his broken heart would to be to adopt another kitty who needed a forever home. And for his good deed of helping another cat in need of a home, he was pleasantly surprised at what he found when he walked into that shelter. It seems a very familiar face was right there waiting for him!

Bangor Humane Society shared the update just this past Friday, 

“Theron came into our shelter today looking for a cat to heal his heart after his kitty, Cutie Pie, disappeared about a week ago. As he perused the kennels, he stopped to examine one of our friends a little more closely and when the cat turned to face him, Theron erupted with joy. THIS WAS HIS CUTIE PIE!! Theron’s camera roll was full of pictures of Cutie Pie, leaving no question that this reunion was the real deal! Cutie Pie found his way *back* to his forever home tonight. (Let me just say I’ve honestly never seen a cat so eager to be in a cat carrier! He was SO ready to go home!) This is the good stuff. We want to reunite as many animals as possible with their owners, and it’s an honor to keep them safe until that can happen.”
