Over the course of two months, the truck driver tried his best at rearranging routes so he could go back to the same spot in Ohio where Ashes was last seen. However, the cat was nowhere to be found.
When Matthew probably thought that he’d never get to see Ashes again, a kind passerby spotted him. The woman named Kimberly T. noticed Ashes during 13-degree weather seeking a stranger’s attention. “He was trying to not put his feet down on the ground, it was so cold,” she said. The woman took Ashes to her car and drove him to the animal rescue organization called Lollypop Farm.
Luckily, Ashes had a microchip which helped to track down Mathew. The employees were quite stunned when they found out that Ashes was 1,465 miles away from home.
“Our Admissions Team immediately scanned for a microchip, as they do with all incoming pets. Not only did he have one, but he had an owner who had registered him under a Texas address that was over 1,465 miles away! This was one cross-country kitty,” said the organization.
Matthew was relieved to find out that his beloved feline was safe and sound.
