REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Amelia the beautiful cockatiel from Auckland

"Never give up hope! I found Amelia by going to the direction I last saw her fly too and whistled and called her name until I heard her calling back!!

I followed the sound of her whistle until I saw her in a tree it was amazing I was so happy to see her and I think she was happy to see me too so I got her seed bowl out with seed and held it up to her she must of been hungry I waited patiently for half and hour but she came down and flew onto my head and then my hand while I gently placed her back into her cage safe and sound.

Like I said do not give up hope! Good Luck!" - Lesley

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Snowy the lost cat from Auckland

"Snowy turned up after nearly a month away. We started to feel quite despondent that we wouldn't see him again.

Last night I heard a faint meow at the slide doors. It was quite late so I tentatively opened the door to see him. I was so pleased he had returned.

Don't give up just keep putting flyers out and canvassing your area. Go out in the evening and call for your cat.

Cats are very resilient and even after many weeks or even months they make their home.

Thanks for on-going support while snowy was missing. Great tips on how to keep searching." - Catherine

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Nero the cat from Mosgiel Monday 09 April 2018 @ 13:00

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Nero from Mosgiel, Otago

"I had Nero for 2 years, and recently moved to a new place only a couple of km away from the old place, so was worried Nero might head for home.

He seemed very settled after a few weeks, even coming in and out at night. It isn't unusual for him to stay away all night and all day, only coming home to eat.

However, after a couple of nights I got worried, and began a routine of walking the streets at 6am every morning and again after dark each night, calling and calling.

I posted on as many local facebook pages as I could, and the messages and shares from complete strangers warmed my heart. There are a lot of kind people out there.

I went back over the same locations a couple of times, and this paid off because Nero was found a week later in an area that I'd already covered.

My advice is, don't give up. Keep covering the places you've already been because your pet might by lying low, waiting for the courage to come out.

And that a few kind words from strangers can make the world of difference to someone. Thank you for your support." - Marie

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Twinky the cat from Wanganui Friday 06 April 2018 @ 13:00

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Twinky from Wanganui

"Twinky was my first cat brought for my daughter on her 2nd birthday, 5 years on we have recently moved to a rural property and as much as twinky loved the new property she was not over joyed with yet another fur baby addition to the family (this makes 4 cats!) But the new baby was abandoned and nursed back to health so she stayed.

A few busy weekends of guests in addition to the new house and new kitten must have all gotten too much and twinky disappeared. We searched the roads as we live on a main highway we thought the worst but no sign. We called every vet. We visited the Wanganui SPCA . We advertised on every lost pet site and all the social media.

I urged our new community to share my posts incase a neighbour spotted her near by. Still nothing. The weeks started to go by without any sign or word of a sighting. I was confused by not knowing where she was and my child and other pets were unsettled. My thoughts were that the worst had happened and I'd never find her or know how it happened.

I feared her starving or hurt. It was difficult to think about. After this long we had given up hope of ever knowing what happened or finding her alive then the unexpected happend...

...on Easter Sunday about 10pm while watching a movie in bed, I hear the catflap which isn't unusual with 3 other cats still coming and going. But when I saw who slipped past in the lamp light heading straight for the food I couldn't believe it. I shook my partner awake and said twinky is home!

I think he thought I had lost it. I jumped out of bed and sat on the floor watching her eating greedily like this was her first meal in quite some time. She was skittish and growling at the other cats that all gathered to greet her too. Apart from being a bit slimmer and very hungry she is totally unharmed and well and found her own way back home from whatever her adventure was.

I'm unsure if she was away by choice or prevented from returning somehow but we are so happy she returned. We got a happy ending when we thought we would never have answers. For the time being twinky is being pampered by my 7yr old and keep safe in her room with bottomless food and all the comfort and cuddles to encourage her not to wander again.

Fingers crossed she's home for good. Or perhaps we need to put a tracking device on her!" - Mallory

REUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Phoebe - lost cat from Napier Thursday 05 April 2018 @ 13:00

Reunited lost cat Napier New ZealandREUNION STORY OF THE DAY: Phoebe (Napier)

"Phoebe was missing for five weeks and two days after accidentally hitching a ride to the local supermarket in our neighbours car and escaping into the car park. Phoebe is a beautiful Blue Burmese who is two years eight months old.

She is a very loved member of our family and the five weeks and two days she was missing was very stressful, not knowing where she was, wondering if she had managed to find food and water, was she OK, would we ever see her again are thoughts that run through everyone's mind who has lost a loved pet.

The thoughts, messages, support from people was really lovely, along with the suggestions and encouragement. We are very grateful to these people who cared.

We received about four phone calls of sightings which we followed up but with no luck.

We put Phoebe on Lost Pet Websites, Facebook, delivered flyers, put posters in the supermarket, vets, SPCA Napier & Hawkes Bay and also an advertisement in the local free paper. Phoebe is micro-chipped so we just had to wait and pray that someone would find her and take her to the local vet or SPCA to be scanned.

How our Phoebe was found:

Phoebe was hanging around a ladies place lost, very skinny and very hungry. This lovely caring lady took the time to gain Phoebe's trust and was feeding and loving her. Phoebe is so loving the lady thought she must belong to someone so looked through the Hawke's Bay Lost Pets Website and found our listing.

What an afternoon that was, I went around to the ladies place and sure enough there she was. I picked her up and cuddled her, she continuously smooched around my legs and flopped down for me to pat her like she always does, it was wonderful.

What was also wonderful was all the supporters from the Lost Pets websites, Facebook etc. that were very happy and relieved that we had found our girl.

Attached is a photo of Phoebe asleep on my lap, her first night back home.

Thank you to everyone who helped and supported us." - Karen
