A poster was created to spread the word.
Kunkush was spotted days later in a nearby village, where he was being bullied by the local cats. Kindhearted locals made sure the cat got fed. The cat was taken to a local veterinarian’s office, where he was nicknamed Dias.
The cat was transported to Berlin where volunteers worked to reunite him with his owners. Right around Valentine’s Day, volunteers discovered the cat belonged to a refugee family in Norway and that the owners had been desperately searching for him. The emotional reunion was recorded by The Guardian.
Upon embracing the cat, the mother cries, “Kunkush, my life!”
Now that the family is once again complete, the immigrants plan on settling into their new lives in Norway.
A GoFundMe page was set up to cover the expenses of reuniting the cat with his family.
