Adorable Miracle Found At Jacksonville Shelter

by Nancy Dunham

Recently a bit of fate reunited a Jacksonville, Florida, man and his beloved lost cat just in time for the holidays.

It happened when the man, only identified by news outlets as Jonathan, went to the Jacksonville Humane Society to adopt a cat, a replacement for his beloved tortoiseshell that went missing in October, according to JHS’ Facebook page.

As Jonathan looked at various rescue options, he came upon one the shelter staff had named Bon Bon. It wasn’t long before he realized the shy kitty was his beloved Misty. 

In the months since Misty came to the shelter, the staff had been concerned that it wouldn’t find a home because of its timidity. “We weren't really sure why she was having such a hard time finding a home,” staff wrote on the shelter’s Facebook page. “But as it turns out, there was a very special reason.”

Misty was waiting for her friend Jonathan. 

The cat’s reunion wasn’t the only holiday miracle at Jacksonville Humane. The shelter that posted Christmas Eve would be a “silent night” at the shelter, because all of the eligible adoptees found new homes in time for the holiday.
