Hannah Rountree, 15, lost her pet cat three years ago. While the entire family was on vacation, Spunky, a black and white pet, got away.
They looked for him for more than a day, traveling across the district, but were unable to locate him. Hannah was just 12 years old when Spunky vanished, but he stayed in her heart forever, and she resolved to devote all of her free time to rescuing animals. She helped at a local shelter when she was old enough.
Hannah was on her second shift at the Saving Grace Animal Adoption Center, and she was looking forward to getting to play with the adorable kittens.
What she hadn’t expected was to run into her long-lost pet. Spunky was discovered by her. The girl instantly called attention to a strange black and white cat sitting in a cage off to the side. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing, yet it was unmistakably him.
“Does this look like my cat?” He reminds me so much of Spunky!” The cat had recently been transferred to a shelter and had not yet become acclimated to his new surroundings or began looking for a new home.
However, it appears that this is no longer required. There was a new – or rather, old – home discovered. Hannah’s story astounded the shelter employees, who thought it was unbelievable. They needed to look into how Spunky wound up in the shelter, and all of the clues pointed to the idea that it was the same cat who had vanished three years before.
Spunky was taken to the shelter in the fall after being found on the street, bathed, and released to good hands, according to the shelter staff.
He was given the name Bear, and he survived for six months under that identity. However, he did not stay at the new house for long. The owners were seeking for a mouser, and Spunky was too kind and indolent for the job, so he was returned to the shelter. This failure turned out to be Spunky’s greatest achievement. Hannah was ecstatic to have Spunky back in her arms. She was taken aback by the serendipity that had brought them together. Spunky was greeted by Hannah and her family as a long-lost relative. He’s immediately showering her with affection and acting as if he’d never gone.
