Lost Kitty Returns Home by Alerting Doorbell Camera

A cat that had been missing for almost a week returned to her home in Long Island, New York on August 14, alerting the home’s doorbell camera.

Video recorded on Stefanie Whitley and Efrain Leandry’s Ring doorbell camera captures the moment their eight year old cat Lilly returned home. After reaching over the camera and meow-ing a few times, Whitley said the doorbell system alerted her that someone was at their door.

“Our family was ecstatic, emotional, and hysterical when she came home,” Whitley told Storyful. Lilly had been missing since August 8, she said.

According to Whitley, her cat is familiar with how their doorbell system works.

“Lilly is aware of the camera, and looks towards the door when there is [a] notification,” Whitley said. Credit: Stefanie Whitley & Efrain Leandry via Storyful
