In the Hauraki Gulf, near Kawau Island in New Zealand, the Rowe family lose their cat while navigating the water. She begins to research and, almost resigned, ends up finding her lost companion.
For the weekend d EasterThat Rowe decides to treat himself to a vacation aboard a catamaran. The pair of boat owners take their cat Lusha young Bengal one year.
The cat is quite active, especially at night, when it overflows with energy. But that night, Lush is quiet, no one can hear him.

And with good reason the animal cannot be found on the boat! Julia Rowethe mother of the family, witnesses for stuff : ” Normally Luchs is very active at night and jumps around the boat, but that night everything calmed down. Early in the morning we found out that she was gone “.
The spouses think their cat has drowned. They search in vain for his body along the shore and eventually lose hope.
The family man nevertheless tries one last act. On the community websiteKawau Island, he asks the locals to keep an eye out in case the cat reappears. In general, the inhabitants of the archipelago find it difficult to live with cats. Felidae are considered “vermin” and hunted.

That Rowe is aware of it Lush may be at risk if found there. So they decide to encourage the residents by offering a reward of more than €900 to anyone who brings the cat back to them.
They also offer to donate the same amount to Conservation Department of Wow.
After 10 days, people start reporting the presence of Lush approx. 3 km from the family boat. Julia goes to the stage because a man thinks he was filming Bengalbut it was ultimately a mistake.
Close to being abandoned, after hours of searching, the woman ends up hearing a mewing and immediately recognizes a very familiar head, Luke, who rushes towards her: She ran towards me. It was an unreal experience. I called my partner, my family and my colleagues to tell them I had found her, I was so happy she says.
It is an incredible result for their four-legged friend, who would have swum through the currents inPacific Ocean to reach the mainland.
On his return to Auckland (New Zealand), the animal has become a veritable “pot of glue” with its owners, surely aware of its extraordinary luck. In the evening he leaves less and less to wander, preferring to fall asleep in the comfortable sheets of the house!
