This is the reunion you get after you find your cat two weeks after she got lost.
Naja the moggy was found across a busy road by her owners in East Dulwich on January 18 at 4.30am – a fortnight to the hour after she was last seen.
She is likely to have wandered across Lordship Lane and been too terrified to come back.
So after a search team heard accounts of a similar cat, her owner Vicky Rose ventured across in the small hours armed with her favourite treats – and were rewarded with familiar meows.
Animal Search UK’s pet detective search team carried out an exhaustive search on January 17 and got a tip-off of a sighting. So Vicky tried when there was less traffic around and Naja appeared from some buildings nearby – underweight and a bit mucky but otherwise well.
