Cat Lady Finds Long-Lost Cat Thanks To Magic Of The Internet (And Another Cat Lady)S

A Brooklyn woman's long internet campaign to find her runaway cat Sammie proved successful when the cat was spotted in a pack of strays. Karen Hansen says that even though she hadn't seen Sammie since last October, "I always felt he was alive, even though I had down days." Recently Terri Vanzo saw his picture online, and thought he looked like one of the strays she regularly feeds, who's blind in one eye. When Hansen got a call from Vanzo she tried not to get her hopes up, "But when I got out of the car, the first thing I said was, 'That's my cat. That's Sammie,'" she says, adding, "It was amazing. My face hurt from smiling."
