“I had been thinking about Ashes every day,” he told staff at Lollypop Farm.He immediately rearranged his driving schedule and made his way towards New York. While Ashes was counting down to the reunion date, he received the medical attention he needed, and gained some healthy weight back.
A week and a half after Ashes arrived, Matthew’s 18-wheeler pulled up in front of the shelter. The gray cat immediately recognized his human dad and went right up to him with head-butts. “Ashes knew him, and was immediately affectionate,” the shelter told Love Meow.Matthew in tears as he gently rubbed his head against Ashes’ and held him tightly in a warm embrace.
“It’s my Christmas miracle,” he said “It’s that microchip – without it, I wouldn’t have ever gotten him back. The women that found him saved his life, but the microchip brought him home.”Kimberly and her friend also came to witness this heart-warming reunion. They fell in love with Ashes during their ride home and were overwhelmed with happiness to see him finally back where he belonged.
“Ashes and Matthew had a close relationship before he was lost – and Matthew says now it’s even closer. Ashes just seems so happy to be back with him, and is acting more loving than ever before,” Lollypop Farm said. “We couldn’t be happier for this adventurous cat to be back on the right track.”
