Default After Japan Tsunami Tore Them Apart, Cat and Owners Reunited 3 Years Later

A cat who disappeared during the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 has been reunited with his owners after more than three years, Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbum reports.

Suika, a black domestic shorthaired cat, was separated from his owners, Kazuko Yamagishi, 64, and her husband, Takeo, 67, on March 11, 2011. While the couple, who live in the town of Ofunato, searched for Suika for three months, they eventually gave up hope and presumed the feline hadnít survived the deadly disaster.

However, just last month someone noticed a cat curled up in a tree in a town about 10 miles from the Yamigashis' home and brought it to Ofunato Health Center.

After the unidentifiable cat wasnít claimed for a few days, animal rescue officials decided to try and locate the owners through an ad in a local newspaper with the catís picture. When an employee was setting the animal up to have its picture taken, he noticed faded letters on the catís collar. The worker was able to decipher a name and cellphone number, both belonging to Takeo Yamagishi. It was, finally, the happy ending they'd given up on.

Pets eventually finding their way back home after being displaced by a natural disaster isnít common, although it does happen. Take, for example, a New Jersey family that lost their dog, Reckless, after Hurricane Sandy struck in 2012. When they decided it was time to get a new pet last month, nearly a year and a half after Reckless had disappeared, they ended up discovering the pitbull mix at a nearby shelter. And after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005, J.J. Pullins reluctantly left his Labrador-shepherd mix behind as he fled the state. But four years later, man and his best friend were back together again.

How Suika survived is a mystery, but an added bell on his collar indicates he was probably well cared for. ďWhere have you been?Ē Kazuko Yamagishi asked the cat, according to Asahi Shimbum, when they were finally reunited. ďItís just like a dream.Ē
