Officials with the shelter said she was lucky to be alive. Unfortunately, the fire killed three other cats that lived in the home.

KCHA staff kept Nyla well-fed and pain-free while she recovered from the tragedy. On Tuesday, the shelter announced the Nyla and her owner were finally reunited.

“As you can tell, they were both extremely happy to see each other again. We’re hoping neither of them have to go through something like this again. Happy tails to you Nyla, we’re so happy for you.”
