A truck driver in tears when his beloved cat found his way back to him after months of searching. Matthew B., a truck driver, and his ride or leave , Ashes the cat, have been on the road together since their paths crossed.
The 3-year-old gray cat shares an incredible bond with his human as they travel together around the country, in the comfort of his 18-wheeler.
Ashes was his work partner and never left his side until last July when they were passing through Springfield, Ohio. The cat eventually slipped out of the truck while it was parked at a Love’s stop.He was spooked and quickly ran off into the bushes.
Matthew searched every nook and cranny for his best friend. After combing through the area but to no avail, he was sad as he had to get back on the road — but he knew right then that he had to come back.
Over the next few months, he rearranged his routes several times so that he could return to the very spot to look for Ashes. He kept coming back and hoping it would be the day he would find Ashes. Earlier this month, Kimberly T. and her friend arrived at the same stop while she was en route to New York. Just before heading back to her vehicle, something caught her attention — a scrawny, hungry cat emerged from a bush, seeking attention.
