In 2014, Cathleen Cavin and her daughter went to a local animal shelter near their California home to adopt a cat. When they arrived, they fell in love with identical twin kitties but since they only had room for one, they chose their new pet, who they named Ozzy, but they never forgot about his brother.
Two years later, Cathleen met Brian Herrera on Tinder. They were both single parents and had a lot in common so it was no surprise that they hit it off on their first date. Not wanting it to end, they went back to Brian's after dinner where Cathleen saw something shocking.
She told The Dodo, "We walked out to his back yard and I saw an orange and white cat out of the corner of my eye. I did a double take and walked over to the cat and could NOT believe my eyes. I knew right away that he was Ozzy's lost brother! I started yelling out, 'That's my cat, that's my cat!' He just thought I was making it up or a crazy cat lady!"
She was right. Four days after Cathleen adopted Ozzy, Brian adopted his cat, who he named Butter. Cathleen said, "After realizing that we had long lost cat brothers, we were amazed and felt like it was serendipity! It was love at first sight when we met and the cats just solidified that we truly belong together!"
Now the couple has moved in together and the cats have once again be reunited.
