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 broke into 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 watch this heart-warming encounter. They fell in love with Ashes while riding home and were overjoyed to finally see where he belongs.
“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.”
