Cat goes missing for six years only to be reunited with family who though he was dead | UK | News

An injured cat has been found just five miles away from home and returned to its shocked owners after more than six years of living stray. Raffi was discovered injured in a backyard by the RSPCA who brought him back to his owners. Raffi, a black and white man, went missing before Christmas 2016 from his Old Trafford, Manchester, residence. After months and years of fruitless seeking, Mustafa Javed and his family came to the conclusion that he had most likely died.

Assuming their cat was dead, Mr Javed and his children, Maryam, Ibraheem, and Khadeeja, who were just seven, six, and three years old at the time, held a “burial” ceremony for him.

The father-of-three described how people looked for Raffi in all kinds of weather and even started Facebook groups because they were crushed by his loss. They eventually gave up hope.

But on January 17, to the family’s delight, they got a call from the RSPCA saying the chipped pet had been found, Manchester Evening News reported.

Raffi was discovered by RSPCA inspector Rachel Henderson, who was dispatched to an injured cat found in the garden of a home in the separate Manchester suburb of Longsight.

She found out he was registered with the Javed family after the officer scanned him.

Raffi has returned to Old Trafford after being treated at the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital for a back abscess.
