SAN ANTONIO – It’s a purr-fect family reunion!

As it turns out, Cookie had been missing for three years before ACS found her and was able to contact her family.

According to ACS, Cookie’s mom had made arrangements with a pet sitter to watch Cookie and another cat, but the two went missing.

Devastated, Cookie’s mom told ACS that she would think about her lost cats every day and eventually, Cookie’s sister was found, but Cookie was still out there somewhere.

As of last week, the family was finally reunited, complete with hugs and kisses! Happy paws, Cookie!
