BARRINGTON, N.H. —A cat named Fuzzy was reunited with its owner that lost him four years ago in Barrington.

The way the pair found each other is nothing short of a miracle.

Michelle Wright thought she had seen the last of Fuzzy when he ran off from a friend's house in 2010.

"One of her neighbors had told me that a black and white cat that resembled him had been struck by a car, which was extremely devastating. I was a mess for quite a while and I had given up for the most part," Wright said.

But the cat came back.

The Cocheco Valley Shelter brought Fuzzy to Pet Connections Pet Store two weeks ago. The store is just down the street from Wright's house and as fate would have it, she stopped in to buy something shortly after Fuzzy was dropped off.

"And I had said to my husband, 'Wow, he looks an awful lot like Fuzzy.'  And I asked how old he was and she said according to the shelter he was 4 years old. And at that very moment, I knew," Wright said.

She told the store owners that she believed it was her cat.

"Then she was really adamant about it like, 'That's my cat, I swear.  That looks just like my cat,  I'm going to have to bring in pictures,' and then the next day she brought in pictures and lo and behold, they matched up everything to the paw prints and colors and markings and everything," said owner Jesse Senter.

A unique mark on Fuzzy's paw helped confirm his identity. Wright still had to go through the official adoption process of adopting her cat, which included paying an $85 fee, a small price to pay, she said, to get her beloved cat back.

The $85 Wright paid to the Humane Society covered all of Fuzzy's shots and more importantly, it also bough her a chip that was implanted into his skin so he'll never be lost like that again.

Lucky cat, I wonder how many lives it has left after the last 4 years?   Glad it's home.

Cool story indeed but if this was a dog then you wouldnt need to ask the pet shop owner details about it to recognise it was yours. One of the reasons i prefer dogs

Why wouldn't you have ask questions just because it was a dog? A dog isn't going say, "Hey, where you been? You're my master" or anything and I would surely hope the pet shop wouldn't just hand the dog over because you said it was yours!

 

In this situation, a dog would be no different than a cat, even if I prefer dogs myself.
