“I remember at one point I was praying and I said, ‘God, I’ll do anything, just bring my Chebon back,’” Robert said in a video posted on the Ventura County Animal Services. After such a long time, Robert had but lost all hope of ever finding Chebon.
Then 7 years later, a woman spotted an ill looking cat, so she decided bring the animal into a vet. Luckily, the cat she found had a microchip, and after scanning they knew right away who the owner was of the 19-year-old cat.
“I was afraid there was some kind of mistake,” Robert said in the video below. The man decided to hop on a plane and fly all the way from Los Angeles to pick up his long lost friend.
After finally seeing the cat, Robert immediately recognized him and burst into tears of joy. After all these years, the two were finally reunited. The touching moment was captured by the animal shelter and instantly went viral, leaving many people in tears.
