TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Stafford family reunited with their cat, Itsy Bits, nearly two months after she went missing.

“I just, I just couldn’t believe it because we had found another cat that we thought was ours, but it wasn’t,” Jennifer Stafford said.

“As soon as I saw the picture of her that went out on Facebook, I saw the little freckle on her nose and I was like, ‘That is my cat. 100% that is my cat,’” Stafford explained.

This was confirmed by its microchip, though there is no telling where the cat went on its journey.

It eventually ended up at a park about three miles away from home.

“She’s as skinny as skinny can be,” Stafford added.

The family had just about given up hope, Stafford even commissioned a painting in Itsy Bits’ memory.

“This has all been very emotional,” Stafford expressed.

The entire family reunited just in time for New Year’s Eve and are looking forward to spending 2021 together.

The family says they are building a new home and plans to include a “cat room” for Itsy Bits.

Jennifer Stafford and “Itsy Bits”, together again.
