Mindy and Luke Criner were worried sick when their ginger cat, named Cat, went missing for 536 days. Cat was adopted from a shelter and had always been shy, but eventually gained enough confidence to explore the backyard. One day, Cat didn't come home and his owners were devastated. They posted on social media, put up flyers, and even set up stations with food and shelter, but nothing worked. After losing hope, Mindy received a call from Animal Control on Halloween that Cat had been found after being hit by a car. Cat was just 1.8 miles away from home and immediately recognized his owners. The family was reunited and their hearts were healed.
